DÜGÜN - MARRIAGE THE TURKISH WAY

DÜGÜN is an intimate and sensitive portrait of a cultural minority which has become the mainstream for many. In Duisburg Marxloh, the glory of the heavy industry has long since faded - today the children of the first Turkish "Gastarbeiter" establish a new industry of emotions. Everything revolves around the wedding business. DÜGÜN offers a deep insight into the emotional worlds of young couples and their families. We experience weddings as the search for happiness in a state of rootlessness and the longing for a sense of home in others.
