Zülfü Livaneli – Sis AKA Le Brouillard AKA Mist (1993)


Mist is uncertainty.
A mist which cannot be held with the hand, or even seen with the eye.
A mist which can comprehend our happiness, our pain, our fears, our contrainment and which encompasses human relationships.
A mist hanging over a family, a society and an era.
As stated by Victor Hugo “similar to the volcano’s discharge of stones, the discharge of people” in an era of uncertainty.
A mist which has taken the lives of 5 000 people within four years.
The effort of this film is to remember and understand something which is lost and gone in our country’s existence and in our own lives.
