| the value of workers' lives
This realist film, which focuses on a worker, depicts one of the results of growing construction sector in Turkey in terms of labor. I liked the film because it shows the background of "reputable" residential projects that pop up everyday. The scenes are, unfortunately, very familiar to any person who lives in Turkey. It is commonly encountered that "prestigious" companies bargain on the workers who were murdered at workplace. These companies can get rid of their responsibility to sustain occupational health and safety through blaming the workers for not being careful. Furthermore, the government supports the companies by defining workplace homicide as "destiny" of a worker and "natural" result (fıtrat) of working. That's why it is strange to see Ministry of Culture and Tourism as one of the supporters of the film.
