Don’t Tell Orhan Pamuk That His Novel Snow is in the Film I Made About Kars (Orhan Pamuk’a Söylemeyin Kars’ta Çektiğim Filmde Kar Romanı da Var) directed by Rıza Sönmez (2016, 83 min.).
One of the most popular actors in Turkish cinema, Rıza Sönmez, goes behind the camera for this docudrama inspired by a visually impaired musician he met in Kars during the filming of Uğur Yücel’s film Soğuk (Cold). Setting up a camera in Kars, Sönmez improvises a story about a barber named Kazım who takes photos of people, streets, and objects, much like the character in Orhan Pamuk’s novel Snow.
