The reflections on the glass sliding doors under the incessant passage of the crowd, compose the visual flow of the video. The camera focuses on the hands whose gestures unroll a silent dialogue by signs with the audience. Colors, shapes and textures echo N.H.Mak’s narration, interwining with the poem’s mental imagery.

An old man’s last wish to perform a Kazakh tradition and ride a grandson on a stallion – is shattered away by everyday routine, bureaucracy and loneliness, and is never fulfilled. Johann Bach’s music on dombyra just underscores the pain and the hope.



Wisteria My Love

In the middle of the city at Istanbul, there is an ivy-encircled pergola on an apartment backyard. As spring arrives, the wisteria sinensis ivy blooms preposterously. With the outbreak of the pandemic and Covid lock downs, Faruk dedicates himself to film this ivy and its purple flowers. As he gets closer, he begins to fall in love. After a while, he finds himself in a documentary project, which indeed was his childhood dream. This documentary perhaps is an effort to immortalize his love and affection for the ivy and its flowers, just before his departure to live at another place. Booming wisteria flowers and their visitors flow over the time, just like water stream over the pond, all under the same pergola.

Scared and courageous, at home but not feeling safe at the same time...

A chaotic Istanbul combined with the traumas of dark days past, she spends a day full of fear and paranoia. Is it possible to get used to live in constant fear.
