Germany’s capital, Berlin, is the city with the largest Turkish community living outside of Turkey. Migration from Turkey to Germany, which started first with the workers recruitment agreement between the Federal Republic of Germany and Turkey in 1961, has reached a new dimension since 2015 with the “New Wave” migration of students, scholars and white collars.
Çağdaş Erdoğan’s new short documentary “82 Plaka Berlin – New Migration From Turkey” produced by 140journos and bi’bak will have its premiere on the 22nd of February at 7:30pm at bi’bak with the attendance of the crew and the protagonists.
bi'bak is partnering up with Turkey’s most popular ‘counter-media’ channel 140journos for the short-film series: FROM ALMANYA WITH LOVE. The series features six short documentaries directed by Çağdaş Erdoğan, focusing on a diverse range of stories of migration from Turkey to Germany and brings to light counter-narratives against dominant stereotypes by investigating a diverse selection of backgrounds and stories.
