WATERSHED CINEMA 2
INCLUDED IN FESTIVAL PASS OR BUY SINGLE TICKETS
Turkey is a country in transition. Under what looks like a geographical and economic transition lays a deep cultural change. One of the basic changes that occurred in Turkey is the fast developing urbanization, coming about as a result of the improved mobility between rural areas and the cities. What was considered rural culture is rapidly merging with the metropolitan. Short films from Turkey are increasingly influenced by this process.
“Shorts From Turkey” introduces films that allow a glimpse on these trends that are principal in the evolving Culture of Turkey.
