To protect our history, our memory, our city and our bread and butter...

Synopsis

Anafartalar Bazaar is one of many buildings planned to be demolished within ‘Ulus Historic City Center Renovation Area Project’ which is one of the last waves of demolition and reconstruction practices. However this bazaar, with features such as being Turkey’s first bazaar with escalator, masterful usage of its time’s technological possibilities, embracing 22 artworks that were made by venerable Turkish artists and presence of artisans who continue the same shops over 50 years; has a privileged place in cultural, architectural, artistic and social terms.

Besides these, this film also focuses on the memory of the bazaar and thoughts of artisans and citizens on the destruction of the bazaar.
