Toprak, 8, translates for his parents who can’t speak French. Today, he goes to the hospital with them for his mother’s second trimester ultrasound. He will be the first one to know if the twin babies are brothers or sisters.
Director Biography - Onur Yagiz
Onur Yagiz (1986) was born in France to Turkish parents. He studied literature, theatre and film at the Sorbonne-Nouvelle University, before directing Patika (2013), his first short film. Toprak (2017) is his second film.
I decided to use the ultrasound imaging and make the film in black and white and Four-by-three aspect ratio because I believe my film is the ultrasound of a little boy (Toprak) who is obliged to grow two times faster because he speaks two languages.
