"IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE" A Coffee Documentary

Turkish showman, actor, and director and producer of stage & music videos Okan Bayülgen portrays a character who loses his sense of reality in the dazzling world of coffee, for which he has an almost obsessive affection. At the height of this obsession, he flits between states of sleep and wakefulness, finding himself in a world where time flows differently.
On this mysterious journey, Bayülgen is accompanied by guests like the internationally known historian and writer Emrah Safa Gürkan, Ph.D., writer Ahmet Ümit, musician VEYasin, educator-consultant Osman Serim, food and culture writer Sahrap Soysal, musician Tuncer Tunceli, perfumer and writer Vedat Ozan, and actor Özlem Öçalmaz.
The screenplay of the docudrama was written by Bayülgen and Selin Atasoy, who is known for screenwriting crime-mystery TV shows, theater plays and stories. The extraordinary and dynamic story covers the various types of coffee and brewing methods, and explores coffee’s place in history, literature, music, architecture, technology, medicine, and business life.
While discovering the deep bond he has with coffee, Bayülgen navigates the audience through surprisingly yet skillfully intertwined stories and tells the human-coffee-machine relationship in a realistic and entertaining way.
Released to wide acclaim by both the Turkish media and audience, In the Blink of an Eye – A Coffee Documentary was filmed with the support of Arçelik, a Turkish white goods and technology company that created Telve, the world’s very first Turkish Coffee machine.
