Will Turkish Soap Operas Change the World? A Screening of KISMET

October 19, 2014

Hosted by: Heather Schell, Assistant Professor of Writing

Wednesday, October 29

Gelman Library, Room 214*

KISMET
Wildly popular at home, Turkish soap operas have taken the world by storm, and KISMET delves into this phenomenon, exploring how the serials captivate, inspire and empower women. The film reveals how the soaps impact and break down negative stereotypes and traditional taboos, openly discussing rape, sexual and domestic violence, child and arranged marriages, and honor killings while also sparking change in gender relationships, activism against sexual abuse, and a wave of divorce across the Middle East. KISMET discloses how profoundly Turkish soaps penetrate viewers’ social and religious realities while empowering and helping women to transform their lives and strengthen the debate about women’s rights across the region.

A film by Nina Maria Paschalidou
Greece/Cyprus, 2013, 57 minutes
