The Seven Doors documentary
In the political context of Turkey, the education system has deteriorated by the year, morphed into the object of vain experiments to the detriment of the youth. The Seven Doors documents seven students, who alongside their teacher, attempt to develop an alternative education model where reading, thinking, discussion and attempts of understanding are upheld in place of conflictual ideologies.
The Seven Doors offers a unique insight into present day Turkey through the readings and discussions of these seven students yearning for an urgent alternative in the education system, as increasing political tensions and governmental pressure on academia became heavier.
