“Voicing Voices”: Collection of short films by the Diyarbakır Arts Center (DSM)
The idea of BAK Voicing Voices Collective Production Workshop came out of the excitement that stems from the possibility of rapidly passing through sliding doors of time and space via stories we have been hearing and telling since we were children. We wanted to go on a journey with whispers of women in the universe of emotions and experiences suppressed and kept inaudible by dominant narratives of the city. We went on an adventure to bend the customary narratives together with 12 women living in Diyarbakır, Batman and Mardin who share a collective memory and a common experience-world despite all their differences. Is it possible to complement the courage of becoming the subject of the transformation in the story to the weight of witnessing and the urgency of bringing visibility to what we have seen? Instead of grand, noisy and comprehensive narratives, can Voicing Voices offer a possibility to breathe by following the stories that transform, become liberated and diversified through joy of a game and vulnerability of staggering?
