Fidan Ekiz and Kees Schaap explore the question why people with dissenting opinions and deviant behavior are publicly condemned to exclusion. Is this of all times? Is there really a cancel culture, or is social media the culprit that polarizes our world?
In the 2Doc: The fight for Istanbul, Fidan Ekiz follows ordinary citizens of the traditional neighborhood Uskudar and the modern neighborhood Kadikoy for a year. She sees how their lives are changing in the fight for the upcoming elections. Co-production with BNNVARA and VRT.
