Full Concentrate, Full View and with Headphones please.

– Vimeo says: Modern Zamanlar is a short but potent critique of our 21st-century love affair with constant connectivity or the illusion of it”

– Directorslive says: “This philosophical short film explores the compounding isolation and compilacted self-awareness that we humans face in the digital age. With a carefully honed sense of irony “Modern Zamanlar” mixes desperation with humor to create a sympathetically ambiguous vignette”

– Die Zeit from Germany says:
– NRC from Netherlands says:

Onaylanmak, beğenilmek ve ego… İnsanoğlunun var olduğu ilk günden beri süregelen ve belki de sonsuza kadar gidecek en temel içgüdüleri. Sosyal medya? O sadece standardize edilmiş modern insan için bütün bunları daha görünür kıldı.


Being approved, appreciated and satisfying ego. The eternal, fundamental and the primitive instincts of humankind since it has been existed. Social media? Just made it more obvious and visible for standardized modern man.
