Everything will end after the deep silence.

You will have daughters who stay because of the voices within.

And then we will silence their voices.

And all of a sudden we will remind them of their own voices.

Then this will bring their end too.


My two-bits:
In-a-word: eerie

Can Eren, a student at Bilgi University, Istanbul has created this eerie but awesome Turkish short film.

As the title suggests, there is no dialogue. However, the sights and minimal sounds tells the story well enough. Steampunk imagery is injected in the film but not in the "fun" sense.

With the recent news on women being stoned to death, I feel that his film carries on the message of the current of status of women in the middle east.

Watch some serious steampunk:
