Abdullah is a mini cab driver who lives in a small flat with men from his hometown in Turkey. He’s a fairly devoted Muslim man whose everyday existence consists of a humdrum routine: driving people around London but never going anywhere himself. He is a lonely man, ignored by those around him, ignored by those who know him and even ignored by the city he exists in. He encounters people at the restaurant, at the barber shop, in his cab and at the cabbie stop. Everyone looks through him, choosing not to see him.
An encounter with a young man promises the beginning of something – but Abdullah’s loneliness is too large to conquer. He becomes alive for one brief moment, he violently destroys the only promise he ever had – and then the routine consumes Abdullah, once again.
Shot on Kodak 35mm (4perf Anamorphic), finished at 4k.
