Passport Control 4. Kars /Turkey/, 2007

International Film and Photo Workshop
Kars (East-Turkey)
8-16, November 2007


On the first day of PASSPORT CONTROL 4 International Film and Photo Workshop, snow was falling in so large flakes, as if it was a movie set in Kars, East-Turkey. In the co-production of MEDIAWAVE Foundation and Ankara Film Association twenty (mainly Hungarian) young filmmakers, photographers, musicians and dancers arrived in this area, which had not only an amusing history in the past, but an interesting situation in the present as well, with the aim of shooting films and taking photographs with their Turkish mates.Click here!

Our Hungarian filmmakers arrived in Kars with ready synopsis in their pockets. As soon they learnt a few things about the town and the circumstances, most of them changed their minds about their plans and rewrote them according to the reality they were welcome by in Kars. The newest generation of the Hungarian filmmakers were conducted by the world famous Ferenc Török with his helpful advice. Photographers were led by Péter Szabó, a freelance photographer, into the mysteries of photography in this unique place.

Members of the staff, crew, cast were Turkish, Kurdish people, and the „13th FESTIVAL OF EUROPEAN FILMS ON WHEELS” which took place parallel with the workshop, and which was organized by the Ankara Film Association.

Briefly about the final result: 6 short fictions and experimentals were shot during the workshop on S8 (with the support of KODAK Hungary). Two documentaries and video clips were also made.
A tiny selection out of the huge amount of pictures, photographs the photographers took can be found in the photo gallery of MEDIAWAVE. (If you are interested in the artistic, documentarist and atmosphere photos, click here.) You can read „Diary from Kars” at the same place, and soon you can watch the interviews with the participants and their werkfilms, trailers as well.
