"Invisible to the Eye"  World premiere at Dokufest Balkan Main Competition

"Invisible to the Eye" is the new feature documentary by the acclaimed Turkish director Zeynep Dadak (Blue Wave, On the Coast) .  I worked as the editor on this inspiring project. 


The film traces the particular itinerary of Eremya Çelebi Kömürciyan’s 17th century travelogue, "History of Istanbul: Istanbul in the 17th century”, in today’s Istanbul. The film, which came to life under the counseling of Ottoman historian Cemal Kafadar, invites the audience to experience “the pleasure of viewing” Istanbul.

Good news in difficult times: Two of my projects will have their World premiere at Visions du Réel 2020

"Mimaroğlu: The Robinson of Manhattan Island" is a feature documentary about the always-inspiring musician/writer/producer Ilhan Mimaroğlu who recently passed away. I was the editor on this project which was put together mostly from the personal archives of Ilhan Mimaroğlu (8mm & Video8). The documentary is directed by Serdar Kökçeoğlu and will be featured on the Burning Lights International Competition at Visions du Réel.
