Red Tape (Don’t go into Tarlabasi)

HD Video, 07'09", 2010

Coming to Istanbul I was told immediately that I should not go down into Tarlabasi. The ghettoized area Tarlabasi is in the year 2010, apart from not being all that dangerous, also the next poor area to be gentrified. Red Tape takes its outset in the Japanese horror film Kairo and in the mix between documentary and horror fiction it aims to distort the image of ghettoization.
