A melancholic evocation of lost love between Helsinki, Beijing and Kars.

13th FESTIVAL ON WHEELS - SNOW WORKSHOP
SNOW - FilmLab -
Filmmaking Workshop in Turkey.
After having explored the city of Istanbul (Visions of Istanbul), NISI MASA wanted to explore the opposite side of Turkey: Kars, a city in the far-east of the country. Nobel prize-winning Orhan Pamuk, a Turkish writer, was inspired by this place to write his novel “Snow”. This evocation of an old crossroad of civilisations was the starting point of this filmmaking workshop.
