In the summer of 2016, the director of this documentary film bought a bunch of discarded letters from a flea market in Izmir, Turkey. Written in the 70s, the letters were addressed to Kâzım Küçükalp, apparently a smart, vivacious, and adventurous youth, who was a fan of European and American rock bands of the time. After accidentally discovering that Kâzım died during a mountain expedition in 1974, at the age of 19, the director set off a journey, which extended from Izmir to Artvin. Finding the owners of the letters and the mountaineers who witnessed Kâzım’s death, the documentary reconstructs Kâzım’s story and intertwines it with the journey of the director. The film is also a partial story of 1970s youth culture in Turkey.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
