Half of It Is Gone (2015)

Students film Duration 27:44

Half of It Is Gone is a 28-minute long documentary about circumcision that includes both subjective and objective elements. While the story of the director’s own circumcision is told through the director’s own home video circumcision footages, the topic is also examined in different aspects like religion, medicine and psychology through interviews with the experts. This is the story of all the Turkish boys on their way to become a man.
