The winter of 1948-1949 was the worst in the Western United States since 1889.

The U.S. Air Force deployed its pilots and cargo planes, C82 "Flying Boxcars" for a project called "Operation Haylift" to drop 525 tons of alfalfa in the first seven days, feeding a million sheep and 100,000 head of cattle in Northern Nevada and Utah.

Sessiz - Be Deng (2012)


Sessiz - Be Deng / Silent

Director & Writer: L. Rezan Yesilbas
Stars: Belçim Bilgin, Cem Bender

The prison of Diyarbakir, the setting of the story, is like the symbol of the torture experienced in the prisons in Turkey after the coup d'etat of 1980. However, in this story, I did not choose to tell the things that took place in the prison, or the political prisoners or the torture, or the political fight. Instead, I turned my camera to the little stories of the "silent" women outside the prison, who could not speak another language than Kurdish, which was forbidden in the prisons of that era.
