In ‘Innocence of Memories’ acclaimed documentary filmmaker Grant Gee ('Joy Division') takes a tour of the museum as the starting point for a trip through love stories, landscapes and the chemistry of the city, adding another layer to the already multilayered 'The Museum of Innocence', Orhan Pamuk’s international bestseller. Writing, memory and architecture flow together in this sensual nocturnal wandering through the streets of Istanbul, which becomes a vibrant archive of life lived. Orhan Pamuk – Turkey’s Nobel laureate for Literature – opens a museum in Istanbul. A museum that’s a fiction: its objects trace a tale of doomed love in 1970’s Istanbul. The tale of Kemal, the heir to a wealthy fortune, and his love for Füsun, a beautiful shop girl with whom he has a romantic affair days before his engagement to the aristocrat, Sibel. On the day of the engagement Füsun disappears. Unable to forget the love he felt for Füsun, Kemal takes solace in everything she ever touched, from cigarette buts to toothbrushes to cologne – everyday items with emotional significance, items that are now on display at The Museum of Innocence – one of Istanbul’s prized cultural attractions. ✮✮✮✮ "Both jarring and enrapturing" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
