Journalist and writer Duygu Asena, who was born in 1946, passed away at the age of 60, on July 30, 2006. Duygu Asena, who stepped into journalism in 1972, made a name for herself as a writer with her book named “Kadının Adı Yok” published in 1987. The ban of this book in 1988 because it was found obscene brought it even more recognition.
The famous author, who died in 2006 due to a brain tumor, was also one of the pioneers of the women’s movement in Turkey… The author’s book, Aslında Özgürsün, which she wrote in 2001 and tells the story of two women, was also very impressive.
Those who read the book, which tells the story of two women pushing the limits of disability, falling into a void, stuck between marriage and unhappiness, loved the book. Now, work is being done on the series scripted from this book.
The series, which will be published on the Gain platform, is expected to reflect different emotions, like the book, and to hold a mirror to women who are caught between society’s expectations and their own inner longings.
The story of the series, which will tell the story of two women named Belgin and Berna, was written by Ali Kemal Güven and will lead the team as a director.
“Married, happy, with children” Belgin is in her kitchen and Berna is fighting for existence in high plazas. Two young women and their best friends, holding on to each other, defy the morality and taboos imposed by society and men, and seek their freedom and identity.
The project, whose search for actors continues, is also expected to be on the set soon.
The play of the book was also made and staged by Emel Çölgeçen and Pelin Öztekin at the Theater in Bursa.
