Sick City Istanbul

Sick City Istanbul is a short documentary video about the gated communities in Istanbul. Gated Communities are housing developments built after the late 80s in Istanbul as closed systems including malls, security measurements. Gated Communities offer a protected space for the lower and upper middle class in the outskirts of the city, while expanding the city and creating small towns within the city. The video is built on interviews with three middle class families living in different gated communities spread in and around Istanbul. The interviewees tell about their life, choices and their connections to others in the city, while the camera watches slowly the architecture and the interiors of the homes.
