The Touch Movie

Aziz Nesin – brilliant writer, dissident, intellectual, humanist. This portrait of a man constantly speaking up for democracy, freedom and peace celebrates his 100th birthday. His work and dream still live on in the Nesin Foundation – a place for children to grow up to be responsible, thinking human beings. The interview of the film was recorded in July 1993 just a few days after the massacre in Sivas where 32 artists were killed in a fire caused by a mob of fundamentalists. His words are as important and true as 25 years ago.
