"...a mosaic of truth and lies, insight and ignorance, anger, humour and humanity."
The Guardian

KàœBA reveals the lives of forty residents in one of Istanbul's most impenetrable ghettos. Their remarkable stories are told across forty separate films, shown on old televisions dispersed throughout Court 1 of Southampton's magnificent former Magistrates' Courts. Taking a seat in front of one film to the next, you can meet each resident face to face - from Guler the wife hiding terrible secrets, to Soner the film buff who loves 'Notting Hill' or Erol the loner, fascinated by birds but caught in a spiral of violence. Set against the gravitas of the court room, these tales of pain, suffering, humour and compassion gain even greater significance.
