Lost Suitcase
3’36” single-channel film
original 2009 / revised 2011

Starting with family photographs, documents and stories told to her by her mother-in-law, using a mock silent film format and melodramatic style found in early Turkish films, the artist presents the story of a transitional era, the story of an educated urban Ottoman born/modern Turkish woman.
