Plot
A Few Brave People chronicles the extraordinary struggle of the Black Sea locals to protect their rivers and their livelihood from a government that is keen to sell them to private corporations.The people of Findikli, Ikizdere and Senoz, three valleys in the Black Sea region, cannot make sense of the fact that their rivers are to be rented out to private companies to exploit for the next 49 years. The authorities tell them that this is a must, necessary for Turkey’s development and energy independence. Trees are cut, massive water pipes are laid and as the river goes quiet, it is as if the locals in Senoz slowly begin to expire. In Ikizdere, there are those who believe the dams will mean more employment, and then there are those who are determined to resist this brutal intervention into their lives. Aware of what happened in Senoz and Ikizdere, people in Findikli begin a determined campaign against the state and its corporations. Over the course of three years, this film follows a few brave people who decide to struggle not only for their own sakes, but also for generations to come.
