Tuzla cemetery overlooks the Tuzla shipyards. Now start walking down the cemetery slope. On your left is the military zone, green and devoid of humans. Then all of a sudden you see nothing but concrete blocks of flats. The workers leave their homes around seven in the morning to work “outside”.

Tracking the daily life of workers in the infamous Tuzla shipyard, and shot in vérité style, 4854 explores the physical and spiritual damage on people’s lives in this dismal industrial region. An elaborate snapshot of the precarious living conditions of the contemporary working classes.
