Drifting Poster


While watching the dramatic changes in urban texture, we meet two young Kurdish cousins working in constructions, just like their fathers and grandfathers did for decades. Ferhat, a teacher waiting to be assigned, and his cousin Emrah dream of a different life, wanting to break the vicious circle of construction work. From dormitories to May Day protests, we get glimpses of their lives, hopes and dreams.
