a marvelous shoot
Yesterday I watched this movie in a panel in Istanbul. I really liked the main actress in the film. The director has selected a very natural and frank public figure from Baghdat. The woman has reflected the miserable situation in Baghdat in a very dramatic way. The film was like slapping me. One thing I really attracted was people in Baghdat are not hopeless. Despite everything, they love life and do not give up living. They are making jokes to each other, they smile (very strange for me, because I cannot see such smiles in Istanbul or in other western cultures). I anticipated to watch depressed people before I saw the film but the situation was somewhat different. They experience their sadness , distress and hate for USA deeply, I can see that too. Thank you Melis. I think you should send this short film to many festivals!!!
