Video: Çiçek Kahraman
Turkey, 2015, 5', HDD, renkli, color, b&w
This video focuses on the common representation of ‘the street’ in the ‘neighbourhood comedies' -a sub-genre in Turkish Cinema. It explores how 'windows' are represented in these movies as an area of socialisation, and how ‘neighbourhood’ is defined in terms of 'public' and 'private'. The footage is gathered from movies produced in Turkey between 1960 and 1985; a period referred to as Yeşilçam. This term also entails a certain genre and a certain means of production. The footage consists of shots of people in windows, either looking at or talking to someone. The video also explores gender definitions in Yeşilçam movies by assembling footage of different representations of female characters.
