Video: The Faces of Turkey


In our previous montage videos from around the world, we've tried to capture the food that is so essential to each country. In Vietnam we filmed the pho, in Italy there was pizza and pasta (and prosciutto, and truffles, and so on), but in Turkey we decided to do something different. Instead of focusing on the food, this video takes a look at the people behind the food.

It's amazing that on any given day, we can pass by 1,000 strangers on the street without seeing them. In Turkey, we took a moment with each of the food producers that we encountered and filmed them a little more closely. Taking that time to photograph all of these faces brought to mind our common humanity; hopefully this film does something similar for you.
