(TW – trigger warning due to the subject)
“In A REGULAR WOMAN, Aynur tells her own story, her perspective of what happened. It is the story of a confident young woman who loves life and knows exactly how she wants to live hers. A woman who escapes the violence of her marriage and refuses to let her brothers and parents dictate what she can and cannot do. She gets her own apartment and her son, she apprentices as an electrician and she goes out to meet new men and friends. Although she knows that her behavior goes against her family’s tradition and it can put her in danger, her desire for freedom is stronger. However, her brothers’ insults and threats get increasingly serious and before long, it is Ultimately too late.”
Length: 90 min
Director: Sherry Hormann
