SYNOPSIS

The Turkish city of Kars is well known as the setting for Orhan Pamuk, the Nobel laureate’s novel, ‘Snow’. Riza Sönmez, a popular actor in Turkey, went to Kars for a film shoot. He met disgruntled locals who claimed that ‘Snow’ in no way reflected life in their city. Their observations inspired him to improvise this docudrama. We meet Kazim, a barber whose walls are covered with photographs of people, streets and objects that are supposed to depict scenes from Pamuk’s novel. We also meet Yüksel, a visually impaired singer who is engaged in a frustrated search for musicians to perform with him at a restaurant.

Sönmez’s debut as a director is a truly original and mildly absurd film experience that playfully blurs the lines between imagination and reality.
