Summer 1973, Malatya... Due to the failing notes in her report card, 13-year-old middle- schooler Esma is sent to his father’s friend Kemal’s house in a small town. Here she will meet Saliha, Kemal’s sister who had run away from home years ago. This intimacy will bring her both a friend and her first love. Influenced by the filmmaker’s own life, Summer Love had competed within the National Competition of the Istanbul Film Festival in 2002. 

This film will be screened for Barış Pirhasan who will receive the Cinema Honorary Award of the festival this year.

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.

The various states of viewing nudity entered the Ottoman world on postcards before paintings. These postcards appeared in the 1890s, and became widespread in the 1910s, following the proclamation of the Second Constitutional Monarchy, traveling from hand to hand, city to city.
