The Galata Bridge in Istanbul is a cosmos of its own. Between shops, restaurants and inrushes of tourists, we meet people for who the bridge is home, hope and purpose in life.
Among these are: restaurant owner Kemal, Gaffur and Erkan, who work as cook maids at the rival next door, paper collectors Bayram and Erdogan, Sadiye, who after her husband´s death comes to the bridge every day to fish, and Ömer, the controlling director and secret „King“ of the bridge.
Renowned media artist Florian Thalhofer has been engaged with non-linear storytelling for more than a decade. For this cross-media project on the microcosm of Istanbul´s Galata bridge, he teamed up with Turkish filmmaker Berke Baş.
