Atık Sözlüğü / Dictionary of Waste

Dictionary of Waste meanders among garbage containers, waste pickers, secondhand shops and invisible stories to investigate the recycling process in İstanbul. The film takes the P.O.V. of a city resident, who sets out from the street where he lives in Beyoğlu for the Umraniye garbage dump where 39 people were killed in an explosion in 1993. Every stop on the way produces another definition of recycling/waste.
