The Golden Girls of Etrim
Golden Girls afiş

Women living in Etrim Village of Bodrum have been weaving carpets for generations. Grandma Gülsüm, 87, is connected to life with the carpet that she has woven. Her 65-year-old daughter Ummuhan carries the burden of the household, but she gets rid of all her troubles when she takes over at the carpet bench. Ummuhan's Daughter, Belgin, age 32, takes care of her 3 daughters. And she teaches them to weave carpets. These women are tied together as closely as the knots of the carpets they weave.
