Circle of Life is a Balık Arts, film made by young people with filmmaker Mustafa Boğa within the Act Against Crime project.
Act Against Crime project has been funded by Home Office CAGGK Fund with the aim of engaging young people aged 12-15 in filmmaking. Throughout the project, young people worked with professionals from the film industry and were instructed on various stages of filmmaking, from script writing through casting to shooting and editing. They also had the opportunity to gain experience of a range of technologies and exposure to role models in this vibrant industry. Exploring the current reality of their lives, the participants, largely from Turkish and Kurdish backgrounds, were able to express themselves through the exciting medium of film, which resulted in the production of a short film. Many thanks to Alevi Cultural Centre and Cemevi for cooperating in this project.
