Aidiyet | Belonging     Fiction | 2015 | 30’

 
 
 
For the skillful synthesis of diverse cinematic elements and the effective mix of the realistic approach with fantasy, in order to offer a catharsis to the heroes; for the tenderness that emerges by the cinematic vocabulary and defines the author’s style; for the pertinent, not explicit but implicit gaze on the contemporary life in our cities.

Kaan has always been looking for a meaning in his life. Gizem and Bengi were in love but the city didn't welcome much girls like them. Fuat had spent his life as a homeless in the streets of Istanbul. There has been a belief that an old spiritual ship once got stuck in Istanbul. A ship that would only be visible to the ones who would belong to it, who would need it in their lives. A ship that would take them to where they belong to. The ship was about to take off.
