The digital U.S. premiere of the film THE MURDER OF HALIT YOZGAT launches Sunday, January 10 at 11am CT / 12pm ET and is available to stream January 10-16.
21-year-old Halit Yozgat was assassinated in broad daylight, in his immigrant parents’ internet cafe on April 6, 2006 in Kassel, Germany. Five witnesses were present in the 77 square metre space when Halit was shot twice in the head. With his unconventional combination of sound art, electronics, and dark metal, Frost brilliantly and sensitively musicalizes the structural racism and institutional blindness that affects the country’s immigrant communities.
