Berkay Şatır
Turkish with English subtitles

A raw and personal journey into the kaleidoscopic history of Bakırköy, a “place of salvation”. In his first documentary, Berkay Şatır uses his own memories, neighbourhood and neighbours to draw the spectator into a place where a musical growth has had a deep impact on different life forms and communities. Bakırköy Underground looks at the changing texture of a musical identity and an area through the use of unique archival footage and photos from the 90s and 2000s.
