It is a great pleasure for to host two international director guests of this year’s Lens Politica festival: Mark Donne (director of The UK Gold) and Imre Azem (director of Ecumenopolis: City without Limits).

The UK Gold: Have you ever thought about how multinational corporations avoid taxes and how this affects an ordinary person’s life in the West, or in a developing country with a high level of debt?

Ecumenopolis: What kind of cities do we leave to future generations? The documentary by Imre Azem delves into the rapid change of contemporary Istanbul and the forces behind it.
