Phases Of Matter

Director, Deniz Tortum, takes a look at everyday life in the Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty where he himself was born and his father was a physician for 30 years. Roaming around the corridors and patient rooms, canteen and operating rooms, the camera introduces us to a gallery of colorful characters. This is as much the portrait of a crumbling set of buildings as it is of the dedicated health workers and patients they care for within. Tortum’s meticulous observations lead us on a journey from life to death, to the realm of fiction, while also telling the story not only of a hospital, but also of the country..
