TAMYRCY aka THE RESTORER - A Documentary
2005, 44 minutes
The Restorer is an anthropological documentary about a Turkish-Armenian immigrant, Zeron Ayvazian, an antique rug restorer, living in New York City. Zeron tries to restore old carpets in a city where modern sensibilities and a post 9/11 economy threaten to destroy his traditional handcraft, which has been passed down for generations in his native Anatolia.
The film demonstrates the day-to-day economic consequences of a post 9/11 America on the life of a middle-class immigrant who unwillingly gives up his American Dream.
Director SELÇUK ÖKSÜZO?LU
He has graduated from the Bosphorus University with a degree in sociology; from the Hunter College, CUNY with Master of Arts degree in Film and Media; from the Stanford University in California Film, Mass Media Institute.

The Second "Kazakhstan Montage of Cinemas: Film & Cultural Festival" launches at the Directors Guild of America (DGA) in Los Angeles on Aug. 3 for a one-week celebration of Kazakh cinema and culture, including musicians.
The festival is a stellar opportunity for directors, producers, location scouts, and the general public to get an understanding and appreciation of this exotic locale without leaving home.
Sweeping from the Caspian Sea on its Russian border to the Altai Mountain range on the Chinese border, Kazakhstan has a rich nomadic history as well as a powerful current tapestry of cultures. Since gaining independence in 1991, the Central Asian Republic has embraced its remarkable filmmaking past that dates back to the 1930's, when Sergei Eisenstein made his classic Ivan the Terrible in this mystic land, and has even given rise to several "New Wave" movements.
Opening night on Aug. 3rd begins with a reception at 7 pm, and includes a program of live entertainment until 11 pm, at the DGA Theater.
Sponsored by Kazakh Geographic Society (KazGeo.kz ), helixfilmsinc.com , the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and the Honorary Consulate of Kazakhstan in Los Angeles, the festival includes Advisory Board Members Steven-Charles Jaffe (GHOST, K19), David Marconi (Screenwriter, ENEMY OF THE STATE), and Ambassador Erlan Idrissov.
Tickets cost $10 (including free parking) can be purchased from the festivals website. "Kazakhstan Montage of Cinemas: Film & Cultural Festival 2012" will be held Aug. 3 - 9 at the Directors Guild of America on 7920 Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles, California
