2020, Turkey, 16’ Dir. Enes Yurtsever and Turgut Cığızoğlu Turkish, English subtitles
After being married off at 15 and widowed at 18, Nurgül decides to return to her mother's village with her young child. Unable to "sit idle," she reopens the village's only flour mill, which had lain dormant for 12 years. Although Nurgül is initially viewed with suspicion by the conservative villagers, she is eventually met with acceptance, even admiration, for "being braver than any man." This short film by Enes Yurtsever and Turgut Cığızoğlu tells an an uplifting story about one woman's small victory over ingrained prejudices.
