(2020/85‘ /Turkish/English subtitled)
Would you like to wander in Istanbul like a flaneur? But not alone, in company of a flaneur, Armenian intellectual Eremya Çelebi Kömürciyan from 17th century?
Based on the work titled “Istanbul in the 17th Century”, written by Kömürciyan in the 1660’s, the documentary Invisible to the Eye takes the audience on a journey on the waterways that encircle the city, traveling towards land from angles that we have perhaps never seen before. Entering through the old Byzantine dungeon Zindankapı, which is located in the middle of the bus stops in Eminönü, and traveling to the Yedikule Gardens, and from Pera to the Islands, the documentary reveals the changing façade and demographic structure of the city over the years. With its multi-layered narrative and visual language created by what the camera sees and animations that flow like water, Invisible to the Eye is one of the most interesting films made on Istanbul.
