Passed By Censor

A Feature film by Serhat Karaaslan

Production year : 2019



    In the heart of Istanbul’s prison, Zakir is in charge of controlling the letters prisoners receive. His average day is spent between the censorship office, his colleagues and his evening writing class. For a writing assignment, he steals a photo from one of the letters, in which appears Selma, an inmate’s wife. More than an inspiration, she becomes an obsession for Zakir. He observes her, makes up stories, and imagines the worst to the extent that he puts himself at great risk.
