Zenne Dancer

Wed 21 Nov / Quarterhouse

A feature film about a German photo-journalist in Istanbul without much knowledge about Turkish values; a flamboyant, out and proud male belly dancer with lots of love and support from his family; and Ahmet, born to an eastern and conservative family whose quest for honesty and liberty results in a tragic end.

Controversial and groundbreaking, Zenne Dancer is inspired by the true story of a gay man, who was probably murdered by his father in 2008. It was shown round the world to considerable acclaim.
