Kazım Kızıl

Français | English

The Cam­era Street Col­lec­tive founder, doc­u­men­tarist and pho­tog­ra­ph­er Kazım Kızıl was detained and tak­en into cus­tody on April 17, 2017, while film­ing uni­ver­si­ty stu­dents’ demon­stra­tion against the results of the con­sti­tu­tion­al ref­er­en­dum in Turkey.

After being arrest­ed, all of Kazım Kızıl tweets were exam­ined ret­ro­spec­tive­ly and he was then accused of insult­ing the Turk­ish Pres­i­dent Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

He has also been doc­u­ment­ing vil­lagers in Yır­ca dur­ing the cut­ting of olive trees, and made a doc­u­men­tary called ‘The Tree of Eter­ni­ty: The Yır­ca Resis­tance’, in order to give voice to the Yır­ca vil­lagers. He also direct­ed a doc­u­men­tary called ‘Where Are You Bud­dy?’ which por­trays the work­ing con­di­tions and sto­ries of chil­dren farm workers.

He now has been impris­oned for almost three months. The Cam­era Street Col­lec­tive, his fam­i­ly and oth­er peo­ple who have been in sol­i­dar­i­ty with Kazım Kızıl are now urg­ing every­one to attend his first hear­ing on 10th of July to make a state­ment of ‘Free­dom for Kazım Kızıl’.

Thou­sands of peo­ple have expressed their sol­i­dar­i­ty since Kazım Kızıl was detained, and his fam­i­ly and friends great­ly val­ue the pub­lic support.
