SUMMER BOOK

TATIL KITABI

By Seyfi TEOMAN

BULUT FILM - as PROD

Family - Completed 2008

Life in the sunny seaside town is not near as positive as it might seem. Instead of ease and relaxation, there is boredom and resignation. Summer Book cracks open the age-old themes of patriarchal rule, disparity between generational visions, as well as the incapacity to change one's own life.
