Married to the Camera

Doğa Kılcıoğlu, Turkey, 2010DigiBeta, Colour, 52'

The film shows us the unknown faces of the TV world through a very popular show in Turkey called “Marriage with Esra Erol” that aims to marry people in front of the camera. It focuses on the people who are looking for a glimpse of hope in the hallways of a huge TV studio: a popular presenter who feels very much at ease on stage, but prays for good luck in the backstage; a director whispering in her earphone to guide her in order to make the show more exciting; a peculiar spectator whose job is to criticize; audience dancing and clapping when ordered; and a young man dancing to hip hop music without ever being in a disco all his life.
