Collection: Single Titles
Conversations Across the Bosphorous intertwines the narratives of two Muslim women from Instanbul, Mine and Gokcen, who demonstrate through poetic voices how their relationship to faith has shaped and determined their personal lives. Set on the banks of the Bosphorous, the narrow waterway that divides the the Asian and European continents, Conversations suggests that the relationship of personal faith to cultural and political struggles is one of the most critical issues in both the Islamic and Christian worlds. In conjunction with evocative visual imagery, sound, and lively debate, these narratives evaluate the possibility of continued peaceful co-existence between groups of opposing ideologies in a relentless urban landscape.
