Inspired by Eremya Çelebi Kömürciyan’s book “History of Istanbul: Istanbul in the Seventeenth Century”, Invisible to the Eye traces this particular itinerary in contemporary Istanbul and opens up an endless path into the multifaceted visual history of this long-standing city.
Based on the writings of the 17th-century intellectual Eramya Kömürciyan, this fascinating essay-film is a complex palimpsest echoing İstanbul’s many different eras. Designed both as a visual travelogue and a city symphony, Invisible to the Eye is an inspiration to the lover of art and history.
