Life Sometimes – Turkey, 2017

director: Cem Hakverdi

Music: Deniz Gungoren


City life is tough. City dwellers all around the world dream of escaping to the country. Istanbul’s Merve and Haluk do more than just dream. We follow them for two years as they experience many surprises as they transition from city to country life. While they are leaving the country for their dreams, they leave astern what they have and as a viewer, we observe the chaotic city and their ideal world which they produce for themselves.
