A Few Ordinary Days - Siradan Birkac Gun

Directed by PINAR OKAN

Doc. / 2020 / 76 min. / with English subtitles

Agricultural and rural production in Turkey is getting less; villages empty and get smaller. The last generation living in these villages grow up with small dreams. The future of these children are unknown. On the one hand, lives in the villages continuously become more difficult and poor; on the other hand, complex big cities... These cities are far and scary places for those children who never left their villages before.

“A Few Ordinary Days” shows us the daily lives of 4 children from different corners of Anatolia, with their worries for the future, their dreams and their questions...
