About the movie “A Gift from God”
What actually happened during Turkey’s military coup in 2016? And why was it so remarkably easy for President Erdoğan to quash a coup attempt that he later described as “a gift from God”? In this investigative documentary film, the Norwegian journalist Jørgen Lorentzen seeks to uncover the truth behind the attempted coup. Using revealing footage, confidential documents and witness testimonies from political refugees, former public officials, and the opposition leader Fethullah Gülen, Lorentzen creates an inside look at a government and a country that is currently internationally looked upon with both concern and criticism.
