Ghosts

By Azra Deniz Okyay

Istanbul, in the near future. While the city is plagued by political unrest, four characters see their destinies collide. For her debut feature film, a prize-winner during the Venice Film Festival, filmmaker and photographer Azra Deniz Okyay delivers a complex and moving opus. With brilliant editing and punctuated by a magnificent soundtrack, she paints a powerful portrait of contemporary Turkey and an ode to its ghosts.
