111 Min., OV with English subs


Majority examines how the young Mertkan internalizes the social codes of his conservative, nationalist and militarist middle class family and decides to live an ordinary life. The only thing that has the potential to break this ordinariness is his encounter with a Kurdish woman. By framing conservatism, nationalism, racism, militarism and masculinity of Turkishness from a critical position, Majority explores how the family can transform into a network where dominant ideologies are established and the values of the majority are formed by defining the “norm”.
