Kıymet

Film Showing and Discussion with Canan Turan as Part of the New German Stories Series

In her film, the director Canan Turan tells the story of her grandmother Kıymet Özdemir, who left Turkey for political reasons in 1972 and immigrated to Berlin-Kreuzberg. As worker and activist, she demonstrated at that time for the rights of migrant workers of Turkish origin, for non-discriminatory education, and against racism in Germany. But at home, she endured a marriage full of suffering. She now lives again in the village where she grew up on the Thracian Mediterranean coast. In a discussion between the generations, Canan Turan shows how such experience of migration shapes not only family histories, but also German history.
