Communist poet and writer Nâzım Hikmet Ran’s poem “Üç Selvi” is about three cypress trees. In his metaphoric narrative, at first, trees live in harmony with nature. After their destruction joy of life is gone and the world is deprived of the sound of cypress leaves. Although Hikmet wrote this mournful poem in 1933, readers can find different meanings and enemies when they look at the  dark side of Turkish collective memory.

“Abla Deme Lazım Olur!"

As a part of Documentarist 2019, I attended an Animadoc Workshop. This movie is created in just three days with limited working hours. We were three people and We chose “romantic relationship" as a topic and a spontaneous chat about marriage led us to animate. Found photo of Queen Elizabeth become our first visual referance than we decided to construct all story on behalf of her.

Bottle Garden

We have a worldwide waste problem, especially with plastic. Therefore, it is important to recycle plastic properly or, best of all, to do without buying or using it as much as possible. How creative you can be with plastic waste is shown here by the children’s club Chamäleon. (Unfortunately, the bottle garden was a victim of vanadlism).
