Ghostly explores the patterns in the emplacement of the new wave migration movement; namely, the recent highly-skilled migration from Istanbul, Turkey to Berlin, Germany. The film examines the challenges of integration, absorbing the way in which participants look to their coping strategies and review the conditions of a new living environment in Germany. Ghostly flows as a collection of anonymous and abstracted memories, moments and stories as the visuals purposefully switch between Istanbul and Berlin. Ghostly is an artistic interpretation of a masters research at Freie Universitat Berlin’s Visual and Media Anthropology department. In contrast to the film, the thesis follows linearly from displacement to emplacement; from the confrontations with the language barrier to the sense of solidarity in online and offline milieus.
