Şehbal Şenyurt Arınlı is a Turkish documentary filmmaker, human rights activist and journalist. As the first woman behind the camera in her homeland, she was particularly committed to the cause of women and minorities. Her political involvement and her connections to Kurdish media eventually led to her prosecution and imprisonment. Only by coincidence, she was released and could emigrate to Germany.
