A look at the urban transformation of Istanbul centering on four different characters in a single day.
Azra Deniz Okyay was born the daughter of an architect and an urban planner in 1983 in Istanbul.
After studying at the Lycée Français in Istanbul, she continued her education studying film at the Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris, while taking sociology classes at the same time.
She returned to live in Turkey in 2010, and became the first female film director at Depofilm, a production company specialised in advertising. Back in the country where she was born, she continued her film ambitions between making clips, short films and her first feature-length film, Ghosts, presented in 2020 at the Venice Film Festival.
