TURKISH DIRECTOR HACI ORMAN 'S FILM BOYCOTTED IN ISTANBUL, BUT TO BE SCREENED AT GOLDEN APRICOT FILM FESTIVAL IN YEREVAN

20:12 14/07/2015 Â" CULTURE

'Homo Politicus', a short film by Turkish director Haci Orman, will
be screened out of competition at Golden Apricot 12th International
Film Festival being held in Yerevan.

The film depicts the events during the Armenian Genocide committed in
the Ottoman Empire in 1915. It tells the story of German Protestant
missionary Johannes Lepsius who attempted to draw the attention of the
international community to Armenian massacres in Western Armenia. J.

Lepsius wrote the book "Bericht uber die Lage des armenischen Volkes
in der Turkei", in which he condemned the Armenian Genocide.

Speaking at a press conference in Yerevan, Haci Orman said he is
glad to participate in the Golden Apricot Festival. The director said
it is his first film and he was motivated by a desire to tell other
people about the events that took place a hundred years ago. "I am
going to address political problems again in my new works. I have long
been engaged in opposition political activity and I am not afraid of
pressure,' he noted.

According to H. Orman, the film was expected to be demonstrated at
Istanbul Festival but Turkish film directors boycotted it so 'Homo
Politicus' will be screened for the first time at Golden Apricot
Film Festival.
