Kaymak is an irreverent love story – it’s also a critique of the contemporary illiberal hypocrisy.
A young, rich couple are on top of the world, when a distant relative comes to live with them. Meanwhile, the neighbours in the crumbling house down below are middle-aged and feeling left behind, when the husband starts an affair with a cheese-seller. The two families are respectable at the beginning, happy at the end.
Underneath its exploration of the eternal search for love, Kaymak tackles darker social issues – surrogate parenting, infidelity, woman’s role in family and society, human trafficking, sexual liberty…
“[A] unique, tragi-comic experience”

“Masterful… one the rare contemporary artists in the world who passionately explore the human condition… a piece of art that transcends pure, unrestrained emotion that reaches deep”
