#SlutWalkNYC

USA, 2013, Blu-Ray, Color, 5’, English
Director: Therese Shechter

“Women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.” This quote by a Toronto police officer galvanized feminist women to create the first SlutWalk in 2011, unleashing a global political movement.

Often mis-characterized as a march demanding the right to dress like ‘sluts’, its true aim is to shed the stereotypes and dangerous myths that justify rape and whitewash the guilty. The film documents New York SlutWalk empowering for some and contraversial and exclusionary for others.

Midnight Horror Stories: The Landlord
Hakan Bıçakcı

Three people sleeping side by side. On the uncomfortable seats of the stuffy airplane in the air. Three friends. I’m the friend in the window seat. The other two are a couple, Emre and Melisa. I’m alone, they are together. And another difference. I’ve only closed my eyes. They are asleep.
