The 12.000 years old town Hasankeyf and the Tigris Valley are targeted by state politics which are characterized by destruction and annihilation. The Ilisu Dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant Project, planned since the 50‘s, has been faced with civil resistence since the 90's and thus a source of inspiration for many other struggles on natural and cultural heritage. 
The documentary 'Water's Date of Death' aims to show the Tigris Valley and Hasankeyf as a living being which is threatened to be lost.
