‘This is not a documentary about Sinop. Through the residents of this small coastal town, we reveal universal stories which effect modern humanity as a whole.’ Yilmaz Vurucu.
The Sea In Me is a documentary portraying the stories of the residents of a small coastal town. Their history, culture and way of living, which has evolved over centuries, based on a connection with the sea and nature, is being threatened by rapid and unplanned urbanization, increasing rates of migration, and the imposition of pre-fabricated, one-size-fits-all development methods. Filmmaker Yilmaz Vurucu and architect Bahanur Nasya follow the lives of the inhabitants of Sinop, a small town located on the coast of the Black Sea, and obtain unique glimpses into their culture, way of living, daily habits, hopes and aspirations.
