MY NAME IS HAPPY – Youth Jury Award – Creative Documentary Competition

Youth Jury Award – Creative Documentary Competition

Screening of the award-winning film "My Name is Happy" by Ayşe Toprak and Nick Read

"This film stirred up great emotions with its strong, universal and essential message: the fight against violence towards women. Its images and its story moved us. The structure of the film, which alternates between shots of very different types but remarkably well edited, allows us to experience, as closely as possible, the incredible twists and turns that this family experiences."

My Name is Happy

By Ayşe Toprak & Nick Read

Mutlu, a Kurdish teenager from South East  Turkey, is destined for a career in music following her appearance on a televised singing competition. On the eve of the final, she is shot by a man she had rejected. Mutlu survives but with life-changing injuries. A few years later, while still recovering, she is affected by a new tragedy. "My Name is Happy" is an emotionally gripping film about a patriarchal Turkish society plagued by feminicide, from the point of view of the survivors and the women seeking justice.
