The Turkish army considers homosexuality a mental disorder which exonerates young men from military service, but also requires a medical diagnosis to be reached through both psychological and more invasive (and humiliating) diagnostic procedures. This film tells the heartfelt stories of several gay men, who have made entirely different choices about military service. Due to missing freedom of speech the young men are forced to hide their faces while exposing one of Turkey’s biggest taboos.
Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.
