The voices we hear in FAZLAMESAI are those of young people who have come to Istanbul for work. A child worker, a hustler, a woman in love: these figures voice the struggles of precarious labor and social division in modern Turkey, alongside Keltek’s typically expressionistic and startling imagery – richly grainy black-and-white portraits of ragged landscapes and cities as crumbling, post-industrial ruins. Here, amid shadows and rubble, the voices articulate sorrow and search for hope. (Leo Goldsmith)
