Istanbul is an ancient city and naturally its spirits are permanent and present. Jane Birkin is there to record a song with Ilhan Ersahin. He asks his manager to find an authentic present for Birkin. %60 reality, %40 fiction; with FILM ISTANBUL KiNo alludes to the city’s psychological and historical layers through select personages and reveals what can only be captured by a poet... in search of adventure, love, inspiration incarnate in the spirit of Istanbul.

Post Scriptum: In a dream KiNo met Jane Birkin on the Bosphorus... 6 months prior to the news about the prospect of this project.
