Ali değil Ari Komutanım - It's Ari sir, Not Ali

Ali değil Ari Komutanım’’ belgesel filmi Türkiye Cumhuriyeti vatandaşı olan üç hristiyan ve bir musevinin askerlik hatıralarına kulak veriyor. Belgesel Türk toplumunda gayrimüslimlerin maruz kaldığı nefret söylemlerine, ayrımcılıklara, ironilere ve ''öteki'' olmaya odaklanıyor.

The documentary "It's Ari sir, not Ali " focuses on the experiences and memories of Jewish and Christian Turkish citizens performing their mandatory military service in a country that is officially 98% Muslim. Presenting the viewers with interviews of these former soldiers, the film helps the audience members empthize and understand the difficulties and ironies of what it is like to be a marginalized minority in the Turkish armed forces.

"About a world that’s hardly ever talked about: what is it like to do your compulsory military service in Turkey as an Armenian, Greek or Jewish citizen? Former soldiers from Turkey’s various religious minorities tell their stories openheartedly and with a wonderful sense of humour."
