The short movie Bayrak from director Köken Ergun has won one of the three prizes of 3000 euro at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Short about the film (I haven't seen it): An oppressive video work about the indoctrination of young people in Turkey.

The Flag is part two of a series of video works about Turkish national day ceremonies. This work was shot during Children's Day on 23 April, a festive day celebrating the forming of the Turkish parliament and the official end - in 1920 - of the Ottoman Empire. On this day, children perform pompous patriotic rituals that were conceived by the elders. With the mayor and governor of Istanbul as host, and accompanied by a senior soldier, the schoolchildren recite poems and take an oath in which patriotism turns to ultra-nationalism.
