1+8 is a film about Turkey and her eight neighbours. Eight chapters take you to the eight borders of Turkey, introducing very diverse landscapes and their inhabitants ––in Turkey and right across the border in Greece, Bulgaria, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq and Syria. The protagonists of the film are the borderlanders. The film is an assemblage of personal encounters, abundant with experiential and lyrical moments with people who live at the edge of their country, revealing what connects and separates people on both sides of the border, bringing up questions of identity, identification and the nation as imagined community.
