Ιşıklık

film-roll Turkey / Color / 16' / 2016

The village of Kushkoy, which means “Bird Village”, is situated in the Chanakchi
district of Giresun province in north-east Turkey. For centuries the people of this village and the surrounding areas have communicated by whistling. Unfortunately this custom, a true form of language, had started to die out. The documentary shows how “Uncle” Orhan, one of the villagers, has kept this age-old tradition alive by teaching it to the local children.
