Reha Erdem – Sarki Söyleyen Kadinlar AKA Singing Women (2013)


One of the islands in Istanbul has been given an evacuation order in expectation of an earthquake. Scores of people flee the island in a rush. But some think otherwise, and refuse to leave. Life will get harder by the day in this apocalyptic climate for those who remain. An unlikely group of distressed women struggle with their tribulations, united extraordinary reserves of energy, courage, hope and faith. The film follows them throughout their inspiring, humanistic journeys into the different dimensions of existence. “We may inhabit a dark world, but there are at least a few people out there in the world whose compassion and generosity of heart give us hope as to the multidimensional profundity of existence. These magnanimous people are incredibly strong because they know how to labour, to sing, to share, to laugh, to run, to protect.”– Reha Erdem
