Celestial View

Director Kurtuluş Özgen’s quick fly-over of Turkey’s cultural heritage sites represents an antidote to the everyday.

Özgen describes his film, put together from found footage, as follows: “We are lost in the banality of consumer culture. Everything, every value is destined to be an evanescent product, including art. Looking at the historical (and artistic) heritage from above, the film tries to extricate the point of view of past artists to guide us in finding our own point of view.”
