This was a school project for a cinematography class in 2004. It is old but I still feel a connection.
I first wrote the poem, thought about places that could be the best to portray and support the mood I needed, then went out to shoot for two days, discovered new places, I was still quite new to the city. My good friend Cagan Yüksel helped me on editing and sound. And, Berk Aydın, also a great friend, roommate at the time, accepted to be my actor.
