Unutma Biçimleri -- Forms of Forgetting
~70 minutes, work in progress

Hong Kong - Asia Film Financing Forum (WIP)
Meetings on the Bridge WIP: Foley Awards

A couple who broke up 14 years ago find that they can't remember how they broke up when they meet again years later. Over time, memories and places have been mixed. Everything overlaps in memory.

Forms of Forgetting is an exploration of how history is layered and rewritten over a couple. The film turns into a recall exercise on the axis of stories, dreams and memories that emerged as a result of the interviews with the couple. Some memories are remembered with the images taken, and some images are taken again thanks to the memories.
