Directed by Süha Arın and Hasan Özgen, the documentary series Fırat Göl Olurken (1985-1986) focuses on the impacts of the Karaya and Atatürk dams in Turkey on the Fırat river as well as local communities and cultural heritage. One of the episodes of the series titled Cennetin Bedeli, which will be screened at SALT Ulus, examines the living conditions of almost 45,000 families, the lawsuits related to the dam projects and the immigration issues that the locals had to face.

Organized within the scope of the exhibition Modern Essays 5: Graft, the screening will be followed by a discussion between the researcher of the exhibition Aslıhan Demirtaş and the director Hasan Özgen.

The exhibition is on view until November 30 at SALT Ulus.

The talk will be held in Turkish.
