Our friend Zafer Avnaş, who was in the process of Serhat News, has completed the first completion of his project. When Avnaş gave “Since Adam”, those who could not reach, stay at the stops of the village that could not pass the 21st, when viewed from the eyes of the inhabitants of Dövecik (Textîs) Village.
He started in high school, in art and television programs, in 2010 at Zafer Avnaş School, Elazig Fırat University, Department of Communication and Cinema. This part was with more music programs than the hunting program, which is one of the content of the game. However, Avna’s “Something” part has been settled to a large extent.
Heavy load of the Van earthquake
During the school term, “I have no idea about the department. The theory classes scared me, but technically I was attracted. For example, until that day, I had nothing to do with the camera.” In Elazig, there is an earthquake in Van, the hometown of the second start. Unaffected by the events that took place in the earthquake, Journalist Emir watches as the Bayram Hotel is demolished and killed. This process is a traumatic one for Avnaş and it is reflected in the school. He can’t relate to the camera until the fourth grade. But this is all. He is proficient in video editing programs. Music continues as a work of art until his university years.
Wedding shoots of Iranian directors
Avnaş, who becomes professional in editing from time to time and does not like the videos that come for dreams, also narrows his ties with the camera. Thus, the video editor is complete. Returning to Van after finishing school, Avnaş meets two Iranian who immigrated to Van. They start together. Avnaş is defined as the educational process in this process. Because working with Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami.
While thinking, “Such a strong team will produce quality films”, economic concerns force these three friends to shoot their wedding and they start shooting weddings. From where to where? That’s exactly what they think. He accepts an asylum request that has been tried in the best world, and Avnaş is left alone. Avnaş, who embraces his job with all his hands, works as a cameraman once after his friends and is just as much of a dream. It also takes part in the festival in a feature-length location located here.
And the ‘Since Adam’ Documentary Begins
Avnaş, whose path crossed with Serhat News after a long working process, “decides on the path of Since Ademden “. The title of the documentary is the speech of a young man named Sefer in the document. Because the residents of the village often make jokes about themselves, “He has not been in this village since Adam”. Avnaş said, “I was good at camera and editing. This was my profession, real rights were a very different field. I met this field after I started with Serhat News. In the coverage of the news there, you will understand that he knows about her. In terms of my documentary, the village is logical. A friend of ours was in storage to observe the Wind Power Plants (RES) in Van and to give them what they gave to the birds. He asked me to shoot that area with the drone. But throughout the village, I’ve seen more of the world and more. In such a right, it was a right.”
Problems arising from a merit test
Avnaş, who wants to seize the entitlement, starts filming after the completion. April flower is completed with the flower of pleasant. The works of Teodors Angelopolus, who were most impressed by the fact that he shot the documentary especially in rainy weather, are his works. Working with a team of four people, Avnaş said, “It was about the lack of education and health problems in the village. Something that I can call the place where the files in which it is located has occurred. Her family is a young girl in this village to live in another village other than herself. Before the suicide, he wanted to reach the area, gather, but could not communicate about the time. This incident has affected me even more.”
Avnaş said, “There was also a bedridden woman living in the village. Their daughters lived outside the province. All she wanted was to have a dialogue with them. But she couldn’t do that due to health problems. Even calling an ambulance to the village was quite a problem. A woman who gives up even her own health wonders how her children are doing. The shepherds cannot notify the village when the wolf attacks the herd, when the lambs are born or when they perish. This is a serious communication problem,” he says.
Reflecting the problems with the seasons…
Avnaş, who is making his last works on the documentary, is waiting for a rainy weather for the screenings of the documentary, as in the shootings. He wants to reflect the feelings, deficiencies and gloom of the villagers not only with his documentary, but also with the season. At the same time, Avnaş says that a special screening will be held in the village square for the villagers. While saying this, he smiles and adds, “The village where I shot the documentary already has an access problem. I decided to hold a screening in the village so that they would not have any problems accessing their own documentaries.”
