I am journalist, documentary film author, specialist of Balkans, teaching modern history of Balkans and Middle east in İstanbul. After 35 years life at Paris, France now back to hometown İstanbul. Last 10-15 years, all my works focused to understand conflicts and his humain dimentions. After years of travels mainly in Balkans but also in Middle east I observed human reactions, spacially multicultural, multi ethnic and multi confessional geographies.
Why I want peace:
As I'm originally from an area where the limits of the west and east aren't wery clear. All my early childhood build a part of my memory and some how my identity. I lived in a multicultural surrounding and kept a wonderfully rich souvenirs from this time. And transformation of the society in the direction of uniformisation frightens me for the future. I hate nationalismes that I considere more a primitive egoistic behavore than good intentionned feelings. I think the respect of humain, teaching and learning to live together is the first steep. I feel also a human responsability face the conlicts existing in the world and specialy in my region. I feel that I must do some think for peace.
