Northeast Turkey

Northeast Turkey possesses a unique character among its surrounding regions. It’s “hareketli”, active!

I had the privilege of living in both the city of Trabzon & in a village in Chamlihemshin, Rize for a total of almost two years. We were filming Dance the Past Into the Future, a feature documentary which explores the dying traditions of the region yet focuses on cultural elements able to inspire future generations.
