In this country you are obliged to prove your sexual orientation in order to avoid military service. If one is feminine enough for the decision-makers, one can be certified as having a mental disorder that makes you unfit for the military (the word “rotten” in Turkish is used to describe these people). This short documentary film, a poignant satire aimed against a conservative society, received the award for best Balkan film at DocuTiFF in Tirana (2016). The director proposes a very interesting and somewhat snide look at a society that stigmatises homosexuals.
