Synopsis

Mithat passionately collects newspapers in his Istanbul flat. The other tenants ridicule him and he lives a lonely life. As the building is to be renovated, Mithat develops a friendship with concierge Ali, another loner, who helps him save his collection. They involuntarily change each other’s fate.

Our take

Pelin Esmer’s uncle Mithat, who appears in her earlier documentary The Collector, is the subject (and star!) of the director’s first fiction film. This nuanced narrative looks at the destruction of culture and the depreciation of objects—from collection items to garbage—across several generations.
