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.

Directed by Caner Alper and Mehmet Binay. Runtime 103 minutes. 2012
