Screening date: 31 March 2021, , 19:00*

“A sniper in the middle of war is stuck in a timeless emplacement. What he hears, remembers and sees cannot stop his/her inner voice. Waiting for Hasan was inspired by thinking of Wolfgang Borchert’s stories and the inner voices behind the wars’ mechanical eyes while looking at images of war. ” – Alper Şen
