Leyl is about the holidays of those living as a minority in Hatay Turkey. During these festivals, sacrifices are made and a dish similar to keskek, which the locals call ‘hriyse’, is made. This meal is distributed to the children of the neighborhood by filling them in containers they bring from their homes. On the occasion of this holiday, the features of minority culture such as cooperation and solidarity are shown. An answer is sought to the question of why this cultural activity, which is about to become extinct, should be continued.

The Conversation They Never Had

Cornbread & Black-Eyed Peas
Cornbread & Black-eyed peas were once just a cost-efficient meal our grandparents used to feed their 20 children but years later it would become a musical anthem we now use to feed our souls. As an extension of Loud Silence Production’s Docu-series titled “Planted”, this music video represents the rhythm of spiritual roots and the blues of life in the pecan-crusted southern fields of Mississippi, where family was not only all you had but all you needed.
