7th TRT Documentary Film Prize - Best Film

A story that has a lot to say about what it means to be young and to want to be heard. 72 students from 6 different cities in Turkey have won opportunity of producing their first short films on the subjects of democracy and human rights. Filmmaking can be a difficult, and sometimes disastrous, undertaking, and the students encounter their fair share of both while trying to make their films and express their own ideas. The public is not too happy about the students shooting films on the streets while their subjects alone give rise to criticism from the local press concerned about how Turkey is being portrayed. There's a happy ending for both students and films.
