The People Who Try to Save the World30 min., 2012, Director: Akile Nazli Kaya

Short documentary reflecting the seed issue and endangered biodiversity in Turkey. Three people in their unique ways try to support local seeds and spread the knowledge of sustainability: Feray Karapınar (founder of Turkey’s first seed organization ”Karaot Seed Organization”), Levent Gürsel Alev (Founder and Head of Ecological Produce Organization) and İrem Çağıl Tütüncü (founder of Sinek Sekiz Publishing House : first and only publishing house in Turkey which focuses solely on environmental and ecological books).

Strenghtening its story with scenes which are recycled from Çetin İnanç’s cult feature ‘The Man Who Saved the World’ and adding them several juicy animated sketches, film tries an experimental approach.


“Cardiopolitika” 65 Min., 2014, Director: Svetlana Strelnikova

Opening the largest cardio-surgery center in the middle of nowhere has been the goal of professor Sukhanov’s life. The price of achieving it is collaboration with Russia’s ruling party.

Cardio surgeon, Sergey Sukhanov, has always despised politics. He believed the only things of significant value in this world were human life and he­alth. In late 2011, Sukhanov got an unexpected offer from the Kremlin to head Vladimir Putin‘s election headquarters. Realizing that the government is using him, Sukhanov accepts the offer, hoping in turn to use the protecti­on of the authorities. Suddenly, the political activity captures the professor.
