A movie about amateur spirit made with an amateur spirit... this is the story of two adolescents who live in a small village, work in temporary summer jobs in a small town nearby, and have a passion for cinema. Inspired by the director's own love for cinema, the film was made in his own village, all the acting being done by local villagers.

All films are free and open to the public, in Turkish with English subtitles.
