Dot (Nokta)

Dot (Nokta) Movie Poster

Dot is the absorbing fifth feature by Dervis, Zaim. The narrative concerns a gifted young calligrapher who becomes involved in the theft of a valuable ancient Quran, but the film stands out as a visual experiment.

Its stark imagery is set entirely against the white backdrop of a salt lake, and its strong style imitates ihcam, a calligraphy technique in Islamic arts.
