About

Mert Turkoglu

His films focus on the inability of communication which is used to visualise reality, the attempt of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content and the dysfunctions of language. In short, the lack of clear references are key elements in the work. With a conceptual approach, he finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humour that echoes our own vulnerabilities. The artist also considers movement as a metaphor for the ever-seeking man who experiences a continuous loss.

If cinema is our most powerful art form, I would argue that documentary is both its beating heart and its conscience. It holds a mirror to our society and it holds our conscience to account.

Documentaries

Our work is rooted in documenting the intimate lived experiences of real people navigating complex social, environmental and economic issues with authenticity, integrity and artistry. Every frame is the greatest storytelling gap to craft to every film. We design and launch strategic outreach and distribution campaigns to ensure maximum reach and impact.
