THE OTHER TOWN ("ÖTEKİ KASABA") - Part 1
Why do neighbors fight? Why do citizens of Greece and Turkey experience mutual dislike and distrust? Decades after the end of the Greco-Turkish War, the last armed conflict between Greece and Turkey, and almost two centuries after the Greek Revolution against the Ottoman Empire, citizens of both countries see each other as enemies. Greek and Turkish people of all ages are caught in a web of stereotypes that hampers the progress of bilateral relations between their countries.
Greek award-winning writer Hercules Millas and Turkish award-winning filmmaker Nefin Dinç join forces in this insightful, and often funny, documentary about the mutual contempt between the locals of two towns, Dimitsana in the Peloponnese region of Greece and Birgi in western Turkey. Through candid interviews with young students and senior citizens, THE OTHER TOWN, winner of the Audience Award at the Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival, explores the ways in which hostile relations between the people of Greece and Turkey exist not so much due to their turbulent past history, but due to contemporary nationalistic mentalities and education.
Director: Nefin Dinç
Producer: Hercules Millas, Nefin Dinç, Claudine Avetyan & Gamze Paker Mekik
