Looking at an archaeological dig in progress, sometimes it’s hard to answer the question, “What exactly is going on here?” Katman demystifies the work of archaeologists, as it follows Drs Gül Pulhan and Stuart Blaylock and their team at the Gre Amer archaeological recovery excavations in Işıkveren Village in Batman, near the site of the Ilısu Dam.

Melek Ulagay Taylan’s documentary had its Turkish premiere at the Pera Museum in Istanbul. It was screened at Foça Film Days last October, after returning from Italy, where it won an Audience Award at the prestigious archaeological film festival in Rovereto.
