Block C

Tülay lives in a flat at Block C, which is the symbol of interference. During the last days of her marriage, she witnesses Halet, the son of the doorkeeper of the block, and her maid making love. This moment becomes the starting point of an unconscious search for Tülay, as it is also the beginning of an adventure leading the other characters of the film to think about the establishment. "I wrote most of the screenplay in Ataköy. I knew what Ataköy represented for us and for the other people living there, because I grew up in the suburbs of Ataköy. That is the reason why I considered it as the land of that lost person. Selecting these blocks and roads as heroes without a story, I placed objects of heroes and heroines such as the woman and the other people... When I finalised the cast, I gave them a 6-7 page text. I was writing the screenplay in the evenings, too. This is a method, you perceive that is going to be a good film; it does not mean that you are not ready... Block C is a bit concerned with vowel harmony. I was always in Block C in the hospital, in the jail and see it everywhere. I gave this name to associate the restrictions limitations of people. Everybody has a Block C story; in jail, in hospital or in the Block C of a boarding school. Block C has a story about modernist architecture where people are imprisoned as a consequence".
