Short Trip

This is your bliss. This is your happiness. This is your short trip. This is your life.

As demonstrations in Istanbul surrounding the Gezi park escalate, a western tourist leaves for a short trip right into the middle of the protests.

"Short Trip" shows the life of a protest-tourist. Visiting the portest shaken city of Istanbul becomes a trip. An experience devoid of polical background or real interest. Using original footage from the demonstrations the film shows the tourist's experiences before finally returning to his orderly, structured, boring life. In a world full of securities a short trip into a crisis becomes the ultimate trip.
