Camondo Han

(35 mins) Director Peter Clasen documents Camondo Han, a battered and neglected apartment building in Galata which was one of Istanbul’s architectural treasures. The tragic history of its Jewish owners and waves of social change it has witnessed are brought to life by the experiences of the locals, who reflect all aspects of contemporary Turkish life. Dr. Oktem of Oxford University raves, “A thrilling visual anthropology, bringing to life the complex fabric of the past.”

In English and Turkish with English subtitles.
