Displaced – Turkey, Belgium 75′ 2017
Director: Volkan Uce
Writer: Volkan Uce
Young Belgians and Dutch from turkish descent leave their country to live in Istanbul in search of a better life. Once there, they realize that they are much more European than they thought.
Volkan Üce (1981) obtained his master’s degree in Political and Social Sciences at the University of Antwerp, Belgium. He decided to continue as a self-taught filmmaker before completing his PhD.
Volkan recently completed his first full-length documentary DISPLACED (71’, 2017) with the support of the Flanders Audiovisual Fund and VRT. The film had its world premiere at DOK Leipzig 2017 and was received with great enthusiasm by both the international and the Belgian public. DISPLACED shows the identity crisis of third-generation Turks growing up in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Currently Volkan is working on his second feature documentary ALL-IN.
