Feature film - in development

TAXI is not just a crime comedy or a war soap opera, but a universal story about a mother and her love for her son. It also explores the lasting impact of violent regimes, not only on individual lives but also on interpersonal relationships. TAXI attempts to tell a war story beyond the battlefield: one about love and its absence, about revenge and power. The narrative centers on the concept of “family” and what people are capable of when they lose someone they love. TAXI aims to portray a life that includes both the anticipation of a loved one’s return and the continuation of everyday routines. The film strives to avoid being one-dimensionally melancholic and cruel, offering instead a multifaceted depiction of life’s resilience.

A film by Cemile Sahin, based on her novel of the same name.
