Istanbul Do/Redo/Undo

This documentary (...) is an important and pioneering contribution to the historiography of everyday life, a field in which the social imagination, official and formal history remain silent. I emphasize this because as opposed to conventional documentaries, this is a new film based on historical film sequences of people and landscapes, which in their original format comprise "high doses" of orientalism. Istanbul Do/Redo/Undo: waters, streets, faces goes far beyond being a simple experiment in editing and through the re-reading of sequences shot in the past becomes a new and unique film and an invaluable treasure of data in the field of the historiography of everyday life. - Prof. Murat Güvenç.
