Hayalet (Ghost)

This short movie by Nazli Mayuk shot on the Princess Islands in Istanbul introduces an abandoned building on the Adalar Island. Originally having been built as a luxuriant hotel and casino by Alexander Vallaury in 1889, Prinkipo Greek Orthodox Orphanage served as a home for Greek orphans from 1903 to 1964.

Following the Cyprus Issue in 1964, the orphanage was evicted by General Directorate of Foundations.
Since then, the orphanage has been left to decay.

Inspired by Enis Batur`s essay Hayalet, the film attemps to give a voice to the neglected building.
