This is the autofiction of Melik, a young film-freak looking forward to shooting his own films. On account of two consecutive retinal detachments, he almost goes totally blind. During 40 bed-ridden days, he’ll be obliged to lie prone with both eyes closed. This “rehearsal of blindness” will culminate in his confrontation with his own fears.

Eye Am, the third feature film of Hakki Kurtulus and Melik Saracoglu, is co-produced by Iki Film (Turkey), Parmi Les Lucioles Films (France) and Rhône-Alpes Cinéma (France).
