The pandemic has turned all lives upside down all over the world, there is no doubt that no one is unaffected by this situation… But a group of people has been affected much more deeply!
Their voices were muffled, their hands were tied, their ears were deafened, their souls became stagnant… The life veins of people, who interpret all our emotions, at every moment of our lives, who make “that music” right next to us, even in the middle of our minds, are cut off… Consciously or unconsciously; somehow they were forgotten, or even worse, ignored. Some of them were killed not by the virus, but by this oblivion.
Two musicians got together to remind this fact and be the voice of the forgotten ones. World-renowned jazz musician İlhan Erşahin and one of the brightest names of the global electronic music scene, Oceanvs Orientalis, dedicate 'Pire', the first single of their long-term work, to "all musicians and music world workers whose lives have drastically changed during the pandemic"...
Directed by Ferit Katipoğlu, the film depicts the current landscape of the forgotten musicians, the secret architects of the joyful days of Istanbul, who suddenly find themselves pushed aside. Do you remember the indispensable characters of the most colorful scenes of our city who say "We are not dead yet, but this cannot be called life"?
