MENA 2021: When I Am Done Dying
Middle East and North Africa Film Festival
Fehmi, a 19-year-old aspiring rapper from a rough neighbourhood in Istanbul, is approached by a top recording producer and knows this could be his big break. When Fehmi meets Devin, a 25-year old affluent DJ, they fall hard for each other and find the inspiration they were both lacking. But the flaming love affair of this unlikely duo soon becomes toxic as Fehmi finds it harder and harder to control his addiction to bonzai, a cheap and deadly drug. WHEN I’M DONE DYING is an emotional rollercoaster into the lives of Istanbul’s youth, steeped in edgy rap composed by one of the most acclaimed beatmakers and rappers in Turkey, Da Poet.
