The sea in me

2012, 60 mins, colour, Turkish film with Hungarian subtitles
D: Yilmaz Vurucu

A documentary which tells the stories of the residents of a small coastal town. Their history, culture and way of living, which has evolved over centuries, based on a connection with the sea and nature, is being threatened by rapid and unplanned urbanization, increasing rates of migration, and the imposition of prefabricated, one-size-fits-all development methods. The film portrays how centuries of co-existing with nature and the sea has created such a rich and vibrant culture, one which needs to be maintained and not sacrificed to the norms of what we define as global modernity, whether it be modern highways which serve as a disconnect between the inhabitants of a region and the sea, or dying out traditions which should be maintained and passed onto other generations.
