Filmed over 5 years, DYING TO DIVORCE takes viewers into the heart of Turkey’s gender-based violence crisis and the political events that have severely eroded democratic freedoms. Through intimately shot personal stories, the film gives a unique perspective on the struggle to be an independent woman in modern Turkey. More than one in three Turkish women have experienced domestic abuse and the number of femicides is rising. But some Turkish women are fighting back. Ipek Bozkurt, a courageous lawyer, is determined to challenge this misogynistic trend by putting abusive men behind bars.
