Nebil Özgentürk (Nobel and Memories) [Premiere]

Denis Olmez, Turkey, 2007, 94’, OVSS.

Orhan Pamuk, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2006, tells us of his childhood, his adventures in becoming a writer, the stories behind his books, the secrets of his family and his points of view on politics. The documentary takes place after the Nobel Prize award ceremony and during a retreat to Istanbul due to the pressures and threats received as a consequence of expressing his opinion on the Armenian holocaust.
