REPORTER AND PRODUCER
This is a news documentary focussing on recent developments of the separatist conflict in southeast Turkey—a 40 year war fought between the government and Kurdish militants. I spent time with the youth wing of the PKK. The young fighters had armed themselves with assault rifles before setting up roadblocks and barricades in their neighbourhoods. They believed they could take over their areas and run them independently of the Turkish state. This resulted in death, misery and destruction.
I worked as the on-screen reporter and producer.
