His first full-length documentary DISPLACED had its world premiere at DOK Leipzig 2017 and was received with great enthusiasm by both the international and the Belgian public. DISPLACED shows the identity crisis of third-generation Turks growing up in Belgium and the Netherlands. At the same time the film tells a lot about current Turkish and Western European society. His second documentary ALL-IN premiered at CPH:DOX and HotDocs 2021 and is sold by CAT&Docs.
As a filmmaker, Volkan makes sure that his films are more than just an exotic story. Besides informing and creating empathy for his protagonists, Volkan also strives, in a subtle way, to confront the audience with themselves.
