A HUMAN A CITY

Urfa is one of the most ancient cities of the Mesopotamian geography where the first civilizations and cultures come to life in human history. In Urfa, the Urfa culture is either "at risk of extinction" or "degenerated" by decreasing or gradually evacuating the traditional Urfa Houses, where the Urfa culture comes into existence. Another reason is the development of the phenomenon of urbanization in Urfa. The ancient traditions and culture of the Urfa are still kept alive in these houses. This documentary aims to record the daily life of Müzeyyen Şansal, a 71-year-old living in one of these houses according to ancient traditions, taking into consideration the place-human relationship.
