Le voyage de Pippa Bacca s’est achevé en Turquie, de manière tragique. Partie de Milan vêtue d’une robe de mariage blanche, cette jeune artiste voulait soutenir les efforts de paix en rejoignant Jérusalem en auto-stop. Elle sera violée et assassinée à quelques kilomètres à l’Est d’Istanbul.
En son hommage, la réalisatrice Bingöl Elmas repart sur les pas de « la mariée de la paix », mais vêtue d’une robe noire. Son voyage commence là où Pippa a été vue la dernière fois et se poursuit jusqu’à la frontière syrienne. Au fil des rencontres faites sur la route, le film questionne l’état des conditions masculine et feminine dans un pays musulman comme la Turquie.

English

Documentary filmmaker Bingöl Elmas decides to shine light on the story of Pippa Bacca, who was raped and murdered by a truck driver in Turkey during a journey to spread a message of peace, by continuing the artist’s trip and filming it to raise awareness about society’s attitudes toward women.

« Is there any place in the world where one can communicate without any precautions and trust unconditionally? » Bingöl Elmas (from the film)

My Letter To Pippa is a road movie: The director Bingöl Elmas wants to take the peace torch from the young Ital- ian artist Pippa Bacca, who in a wedding dress, attempted to hitchhike from Rome to Jerusalem. She was raped and assassinated a few kilometers to the east of İstanbul. The tragedy became a national affair. Political leaders, bureau- crats, intellectuals and the media all expressed their reactions while provoking the wrath of a large part of society who reproaches them for their indifference in the face of the repetition of the same act on thousands of the country’s female citizens. Bingöl decides to undertake the journey from the spot where the Italian fell up until the Syrian border. But she will wear a black wedding dress. Hitchhiking through the countryside with her subjective camera, she seeks to engage with the representatives and representations of notions like machismo and violence and to make a place for herself as a woman in the very male world of truck drivers. The end product is a documentary that defies expectations. Bingol is not angry, she is not dark, she does not reprimand. She is bright, sincere and at times even humorous as she negotiates that thin line between trying to make sense of what is, and building hope for what might be.

TURKISH
« Dünyanın herhangi bir yerinde, hiçbir güvenlik tedbiri almadan iletişim kurmak, koşulsuz güvenmek mümkün mü? » Bingöl Elmas (filmden)

Pippa’ya Mektubum bir yol filmi. Dünya barışı için beyaz gelinlik giyip Milano’dan otostopla yola çıkan Pippa Bacca’nın yolculuğu, Türkiye’de, Gebze Ballıkayalar’da uğradığı saldırıyla çok üzücü bir şekilde sonlanmıştı. Türkiye’nin siyasi liderl- eri, basını ve aydınları olayı kınarken, birçok insan da Türkiye’de binlerce kadının her gün tekrar tekrar maruz kaldığı şiddet olaylarına bu olaydaki kadar güçlü tepki verilmediği için öfkeliydi. Film, Bingöl Elmas’ın yine otostopla, ama bu sefer siyah bir gelinlikle, « Barış Gelini »nin yarım kalan yolculuğuna devam etmesini anlatıyor. Kameralı yolculuk, Pippa’nın son otostop yaptığı yerden başlayıp Suriye sınırında son buluyor. Türkiye yollarında maço kültürün ve şiddetin temsil biçimlerinin ve de temsilcilerinin izini süren Bingöl, erkeklere ait alanlarda, otobanlarda, ve kamyonlarda kadın olarak gezinip hiçbir tacize, tecavüze uğramadan var olabilmek, aynı zamanda da kamyon şoförleriyle Pippa’dan, tacizden, « erkeklikten » bahsetmek istemiş. Ortaya çıkan film, beklenebileceği üzere karanlık bir film değil; Bingöl Elmas film boyunca kızgın değil, asık suratlı değil, amacı birilerini azarlamak ya da birilerine ders vermek de değil. Her zaman samimi ve hatta zaman zaman esprili bir bakışla, hem olanları anlamaya çalışıyor, hem de olabilecekleri hayal ederek umuda selam gönderiyor.
