Hoş Istanbul


They practice diligently above the rooftops of Istanbul. They circle around each other like tango dancing cranes in the dust. But Margarita has not found her master yet.

Director Biography - David Franz

David Franz is a young director and musician from Germany. He shot his first short film THE MERCIFUL SAMARITANS (2008) with his mother's stolen VHS camera at the age of 11. The family's holiday footage had been taped over, but his love of filmmaking remained.
