EREN | DOCUMENTARY | BY MARIA BINDER
EREN profiles a dedicated woman with a strong sense of justice. For more than 30 years she has been fighting for fundamental rights and freedom in Turkey as a lawyer and human rights defender. She has been a key player in the fight for women’s and LGBT-rights, against torture and sexualized violence. Her hard work has made great contributions to the development of civil society in Turkey even though she has been targeted, threatened, attacked and imprisoned several times. With dozens of indictments against her with sentences adding up to a lifelong imprisonment she knows what it takes to sacrifice her own life for a greater cause. But her perseverance has its price, when she wakes up every morning without knowing if this is her last day in freedom.
