1984. Five years after the military coup in Turkey, a woman wanders the streets of Istanbul. The uncanny has enveloped the people and the whole city; something is missing. Friendships, casual conversations, boredom, search, loss and then a hopeful departure to the island. What is left of it all? Merlyn Solakhan's first film, Rhyme, starring Mustafa Irgat and Zümrüt Pekin, was screened at the Berlin Film Festival in 1986. Merlyn Solakhan's important film presents the transformation of a nursery rhyme into a tongue twister with a unique aesthetic that has never been seen before in Turkish cinema.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
