Scream for Ice
Born in 1984, Emir recently completed postgraduate study at Maltepe University (Turkey) having previously completed an MA in Directing from the University of Westmister, London. Between 2013 and 2017 he co-founded and directed the 8Buçuk Advertising and Digital PR Agency, and has recently taken part as jury member and instructor at film festivals, film forums and film project support funds.
Based on the form of the traditional Japanese art of Haiku poetry, Scream for Ice addresses the unsettling reality of global warming. From the very beginning, we are confronted with the abuse of non-renewable energy as a man desperately attempts to stay cool in the combusting city, while a polar bear becomes stranded as a glacier falls apart. Clever narrative transitions subvert our perception of the world, bringing us closer to a reality behind the surface and delivering an urgent message about the state of the planet.
