The First Few Breaths

May 23, 2011

Assignment: VCPII (Bilkent University): Create a one-minute film that is either a visual poem, or an experimental piece.

Summary (from DVD box):

Alone in a crowd
I cannot breath,
I cannot see.
The air grasps my throat,
my eyes full of smoke.
Foreign tongues lick my cold ears,
still frozen over, “Turkish yok.”
Thawing them with morning çay,
Tomorrow’s suns of smiling skies.

“The First Few Breaths” is a dual- narrative-based experimental film about the unique challenges of Turkish culture to a foreigner with asthma.
