If Only There Were Peace, 30' (2017) Co-Directed with Deniz Tortum Awarded Best International Short Documentary - DokuFest, 2017
"If Only There Were Peace is a documentary about making a narrative film, with structural debts to Kiarostami and Panahi’s meta-textual refractions of tragedy and/or filmmaking... Greased along by the playful skill with which scenes are repeatedly recontextualized, If Only There Were Peace builds to a self-indictment of its own practical uselessness." - Vadim Rizov, Filmmaker Magazine.
"An original and multi-layered exploration of power relations, identity and performance that allows us to reflect upon the function of cinema as a social and cultural tool." -Jury Statement, DokuFest
