Film about coup attempt: Film festival in Antalya faces censorship allegations

The oldest film festival in Turkey, the Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival, is in turmoil after jury members resigned and filmmakers withdrew their works from the competition due to censorship allegations.

In an unprecedented move, the producers and directors of 27 entries for the festival announced their withdrawal on Wednesday. Just a few days earlier, 20 members of the festival jury had resigned, citing the removal of a documentary film by the organizers as the reason.

Kanun Hükmü (The Decree) by Nejla Demirci tells the story of two public service employees, a teacher and a doctor, who were dismissed during the state of emergency imposed in Turkey after the coup attempt in 2016.

The Turkish government, led by the Justice and Development Party (AKP), initiated a massive purge of state institutions following the coup attempt on July 15, 2016. Over 130,000 civil servants were dismissed from their positions via emergency decrees. Authorities claimed that they lost their jobs due to alleged connections to "terrorist organizations," but critics argue that the government targets anyone perceived as an opponent.

The festival's director, Ahmet Boyacıoğlu, explained that the documentary film was removed from the national documentary film category due to an ongoing legal case involving one of the actors. "For this reason, it was decided to exclude the film from this year's selection in order not to affect the court proceedings and impartiality," Boyacıoğlu said.

However, for director Demirci, this response is an "excuse" and "blatant censorship."

The filmmakers demanded respect for freedom of expression. The Free Art Assembly, representing artists from various fields, described the exclusion of the film as an "attack on artistic expression and creativity, as well as an attempt to normalize censorship in all artistic domains," and reinstated the documentary film in the Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival program.

The Ministry released the following statement on its social media account: "The Ministry of Culture and Tourism works with the vision to preserve, develop, and strengthen Turkey's cultural and artistic values." In line with this vision, they support "hundreds of cultural and artistic events" taking place both domestically and abroad.

"One of the most important events in Turkish cinema, the 60th Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival, is currently being organized. The documentary film 'Kanun Hükmü' will be shown in the documentary film competition section of this festival," the statement continued.

It is deeply regrettable that "such an important festival provides an opportunity to use the power of art to spread the propaganda of the FETÖ terrorist organization under the pretext of harassment." The Ministry will not participate in efforts to discredit the "heroic struggle our nation fought on July 15 or to use art as a means of provocation. For this reason, we announce our withdrawal from the Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival," the statement concluded.

In addition, the Mayor of Antalya, Muhittin Böcek, made the following statement: "In the past four years, the city of Antalya has not intervened in the formation of selection committees, the selection of juries, the content of films, or the decision of whether a film wins or not, and will not do so in the future. The national competition category, which was removed from the festival's program by the previous government, was reinstated during our term with great effort and conviction to bring the festival back to its core. This decision is the clearest evidence of our stance against censorship."

The festival, which has been held in the Mediterranean city of Antalya since 1963, is a highlight of the Turkish cultural calendar. This year, it is scheduled to take place from October 7 to 14. It is not yet known whether the festival will proceed as planned or if the filmmakers who withdrew their films will participate after the reinstatement of Kanun Hükmü.

Daniel Radcliffe Expresses Emotional Words on the Death of Michael Gambon

"I am sad, but I am grateful": "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe has bid farewell to his longtime co-star Michael Gambon with heartfelt words.

"Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe (34) is mourning the loss of his longtime colleague and co-star Michael Gambon (1940-2023). In a lengthy statement given to "Entertainment Weekly" regarding the passing of the Dumbledore actor, Radcliffe said that the world had lost a touch of magic and fun. Radcliffe is quoted as saying, "Michael Gambon was one of the most brilliant and uncomplicated actors I ever had the privilege to work with."

Despite his "immense talent," what Radcliffe will remember most is how much fun he had on the job: "He was silly, irreverent, and hilarious." Gambon loved his work but never seemed to define himself by it, Radcliffe continued. They worked together in six of the eight "Harry Potter" films in total. The Irish-British actor Gambon took on the role of Dumbledore from "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" in 2004 after the previous actor, Richard Harris (1930-2002), passed away.

Daniel Radcliffe: "I am so grateful that I got to work with him" According to Radcliffe, his colleague was an "incredible storyteller and jokester" who had a habit of blurring the lines between fact and fiction when speaking with journalists, for example. This made him a "pleasant part" of the countless "Harry Potter" press conferences. Time on set made Gambon "unforgettable and joyful." Radcliffe said, "I am so sad to hear that he has passed away, but I am so grateful to be one of the fortunate people who got to work with him."

According to consistent reports from British media, Michael Gambon passed away at the age of 82 from pneumonia. He peacefully passed away in the hospital alongside his wife Anne and son Fergus. In addition to the "Harry Potter" films, Gambon was also known for numerous other major Hollywood productions, including roles in films such as "Sleepy Hollow" (1999) and "Gosford Park" (2001).

"Fear of Humiliation": Robert Pattinson Struggles with Role Selection


On the silver screen, actor Robert Pattinson (37) is often known as a confident hero - whether it was at the beginning of his Hollywood career in the "Twilight" saga or more recently in the dark superhero film "The Batman." In a new interview, the star revealed, however, the profound self-doubts that come with choosing a new role: "I have a deep, deep fear of humiliation," quotes the "Interview" magazine the actor.

He always wants to give his all for his part but is continuously accompanied by the fear of not being able to do so. In the end, though, no one cares about the reasons for this failure: "You just know it falls back on you. Of course, you can say the script was awful or the director was a jerk, [...] but at the end of the day, no one cares about the reasons. You're the one they will say was bad. And a majority of people will say that even though you did your best."

Existential anxieties also plague him This is not the first time Pattinson has offered deep insights into his fears and concerns as an actor. In 2020, for example, he told GQ magazine that he also grapples with existential anxieties - a reason why he turned down smaller but more challenging indie films: "The problem was that no one watched them, no matter how much I liked the films I made."

Although Hollywood's dream factory is often glorified from the outside, at least Pattinson is dealing with very worldly worries there: "I'm constantly thinking that you'll spend most of your life unemployed and desperate, feeling like a complete failure." So, there is maximum stress when shooting is happening, and one feels even emptier between two projects.

Margaret Qualley: Completely Happy!

Margaret Qualley is floating on cloud nine after her wedding to Jack Antonoff and can't wait to see what the future holds.

The 28-year-old actress tied the knot with the 39-year-old musician in August after two years of being together and admitted that their life together is "fantastic," and she couldn't be happier to have "a home" with him.

She told Harper's Bazaar, "I'm so happy that I've found my person. And it's real. It's incredible. It's the best feeling in the world. I'm so excited and at the same time so relaxed... Until about a month before I met Jack, I never had any furniture. I always had these small apartments... and moved from one place to another with a mattress on the floor and an Ikea lamp. I never had a real home. I didn't care, I was focused on films. I used my sister's basement in L.A. as a storage for my things. But I didn't invest in that part of my life." Therefore, Margaret is looking forward even more to their future together. "It's really exciting to now create a home and have something to take care of."

One day, the actress wants to have children too. She added, "I just want to do everything with Jack. One day, I want to have kids, but I'm not there yet, and I want to keep making movies. And that's all I know."

[.WATCH.] One Piece Episode 1072 English Subbed Free

One Piece

[.WATCH.] One Piece Episode 1072 English Subbed Free ,Shiver! Luffy's Gear 5 has finally been unveiled. One Piece fans are brimming with excitement for the upcoming episode, specifically One Piece episode 1072, which will showcase the power that Eiichiro Oda has meticulously prepared for Luffy.


And why wouldn't they be? Luffy's clash against Kaido, employing the might of Gear 5, commences.

The battle between Luffy and Kaido in the actual anime has just commenced, all thanks to Gear 5 Luffy's astonishing abilities that defy human comprehension.

This is precisely why the entire fandom eagerly anticipates the release of the upcoming One Piece episode 1072.

The forthcoming One Piece Episode 1072 is scheduled to be available for all fans on Sunday, August 12th, 2023, titled “Silly Power! Gear 5 in Full Play”.

Here are the release times in different time zones:

  • Pacific Time (US & Canada): 5:30 PM on Saturday, August 12, 2023.
  • Central Time (Mexico): 6:30 PM on Saturday, August 12, 2023.
  • Eastern Time (US & Canada): 8:30 PM on Saturday, August 12, 2023.
  • Indian Standard Time (India): 06:00 AM on Sunday, August 13, 2023.
  • Australian Standard Time (Australia): 02:00 AM on Sunday, August 13, 2023.

In the previous episode, fans got a glimpse of Gear 5th, along with a sighting of Kaido.

All these elements converge in this episode, and fans are well aware that One Piece has truly delivered in these moments.

This may not be the entirety of Luffy and Kaido's showdown, but it serves as a grand introduction to Gear 5 and the Gomu Gomu no Mi.

As the previous episode unfolds, we witness Luffy rising once again, invoking comparisons to the Legendary Joy Boy. As we saw in the previous episode, Zunesha's cries resonate.

In parallel, Zunesha mentions hearing the Drums of Liberation for the first time in 800 years, leading to the belief that Joy Boy has returned.

Meanwhile, as Luffy regains his consciousness, he marvels at his ability to stand despite losing the battle. Laughter ensues, accompanied by a captivating musical backdrop.

Interestingly, this particular moment was absent in the manga. While the manga depicted Luffy ready to engage, I'm delighted to see this addition in the anime, complete with the vibrant yellow light.

One Piece Episode 1071: Recap and Review

Further into the episode, fans also observe Sanji recovering his senses and questioning Luffy's actions on the rooftop.

On the Show Floor, characters including Kid and Law are left pondering the commotion and luminance above them.

Cutting to Mary Geoise, we witness the Five Elders discussing the sacrifice of Guernica, who attempted to halt Luffy.

Moreover, fans learn about the discussion surrounding Luffy's Devil Fruit. One of the Elders mentions that the World Government has persistently sought the Gomu Gomu no Mi for 800 years, yet it has remained elusive.

Others propose that the fruit's elusive nature might be due to its innate will. Being a Zoan-Type Devil Fruit, it bears the name of a deity, known as Zoan, Human-Human Fruit, Myth-Type, Model "Nika".

Additionally, it is revealed that Nika possesses rubber-like properties, enabling spirited combat and eliciting smiles.

This enigmatic figure is none other than the Warrior of Liberation, also recognized as “Nika,” the God of the Sun.

Upon awakening the Gomu Gomu no Mi, it bestows even greater potency and freedom to its wielder's rubbery form, rendering it an incredibly outlandish power in the world.

Fully empowered in Gear 5th, Luffy emanates a formidable Haoshoku Haki, resulting in the collapse of numerous members of the Beasts Pirates. Concurrently, Luffy seizes Kaido in his Dragon form and hoists him, marking the commencement of an exhilarating and amusing anime brawl. This juncture ushers in battles akin to the legendary rivalry of Tom and Jerry.
