In 2008, Turkish author Orhan Pamuk, winner of the Nobel Prize for literature, published "The Museum of Innocence", in which he recounts a tragic love story in 1970s Istanbul. Four years later, Pamuk opened a real museum in Istanbul with the same name, in which he exhibits the everyday objects that appear in his novel: socks, dresses, jewellery, even hundreds of cigarette ends.
The fil"Innocence of Memories" came out of the collaboration between Pamuk and filmmaker Grant Gee on the book and the museum. It proposes a third experience of the very same story, giving a different perspective that calls on a tripartite narrative between the city, the Museum and the writer himself. A visually astonishing baroque love letter to the city as a repository of memories.
