Mobile Kino presents: Film program with Maria Binder and Ebru Kırancı.

‘Trans X Istanbul (Turkish with English subtitles)’ will meet their Berlin audience in an open air screening that will be followed by a panel discussion (in Turkish and German).

Thousands of Trans*Women live in the big cities of Turkey. Crimes against Trans*Women are mostly not investigated. Ebru, a Trans*Woman from Istanbul fights against the displacement and murder of her companions. She wants to change Turkish society with humour, self-irony and political acumen. She meets Margarethe, a 85-year-old German retired nurse and establishes with her an retirement home for Trans*. The film shows how hate crime works as a system. Urban transformation of Istanbul and the protests around the Gezi Park in 2013 resonate throughout the film.
