Concorso documentari italiani 2014

Menzione speciale Legambiente

Prize assigned to

What started off as a small protest against the demolition of a small park in Istanbul to make way for a shopping mall turned into a massive civil uprising against an unwanted urban redevelopment model. The Gezi Park revolt has become an international symbol of civil disobedience in the defense of the environment. The images of the clash with riot police rapidly spread across the Internet and the media, garnering Western sympathy for the protestors yet also meeting silence from other countries and international organizations. The film gives voice to young generations in the hope that the success of future environmental protests can rely on the ability of civil society groups to organize international solidarity.
