On a rooftop in Adana, Yusuf cares for the pigeons in his dovecote. His favourite bird is called Maverdi. To lure it even closer, he sometimes puts a seed between his lips for it to peck. The light grey pigeon is an outsider in the dovecote, just as Yusuf is in society, where he has to face ignorance and violence. The young man’s face rarely brightens up, and the pressure from his brother to go out to work makes things even worse.
Born in Adana, Turkey in 1987, she studied fine arts with a focus on painting at Çukurova University in Adana. She has worked on various films as an assistant director and has directed several short films. The Pigeon is her debut feature.
