World Premiere

In 2016, Algin and her crew begin the shooting of a documentary called The Women in Purple that investigates the rapid increase of violence against women in Turkey, where more than two women lose their lives every day. Hunting a story of a victim of domestic violence, the members of the crew become victims themselves, hunted within the story, leaving only their footage behind.

In this film, ‘purple’ signifies both the hope of the ‘feminist’ film crew shooting The Women in Purple and the traces of the ‘bruised woman’ who testifies how she has been exposed to indiscriminate violence. The last footage taken by the documentary crew trying to reveal the damage done by the violence against women turns out to be almost like a thriller that shows how women live with insecurity in contemporary Turkish society.
