Ground Level

Turkey is a country in transition. Under what looks like a geographical and economic transition lays a deep cultural change. One of the basic changes that occurred in Turkey is the fast developing urbanisation, coming about as a result of the improved mobility between rural areas and the cities. What was considered rural culture is rapidly merging with the metropolitan. Short films from Turkey are increasingly influenced by this process.

Shorts From Turkey introduces films that allow a glimpse of these trends that are leading the evolving culture of Turkey.
