Güldem Durmaz lives and works between Brussels, Istanbul and Paris.
Since 2000, her work includes, and sometimes mixes, film-making, video installations, and live performances.
Her short fiction films have been selected and rewarded in numerous international festivals.
Her first feature-length film, Kazarken - As We Dig, was completed in 2016.
Her work explores the connections between memory, language and cultural or transcultural identities, as she experiments with actors and non-actors, secret or invented languages, spaces and situations both real and oneiric.
