After several decades of absence, a traditional craft has returned to Diyarbakır: silk production. An observation of home-grown silkworms, from the first egg to the silky cocoons. A sensitively woven look at the patient work of people living in rooms full of silkworms and children.


Sena Başöz (1980) was born in İzmir. She studied film at Bard College in New York and economics at the Bosporus University in Istanbul, and is currently a doctoral candidate at the city’s Technical University. She works with video and performance art, and her short films have been shown at festivals in Cannes and Seoul, among other places.
