Experiencing Interruptions?


The animated short film tells the story of Turkish arabesque singer superstar Müslüm Gürses. The subject of scientific curiosity and discussion, Papa Müslüm, as he was known, attracted a rabidly faithful audience that would descend into a state of euphoric melancholy and razor-inflicted self-harm. Seeped into a surreal narrative, the short film takes a trip into Papa Müslüm’s life of sadness and fortune, beginning in an old village hut and ending in İstanbul.
