Carnations are the most exported among cut-flower varieties, making up to 60% of Turkeyâ€™s cut-flower production. Red, white, yellow, pink - the variety of carnations expresses a broken heart for some, while breaking the hearts of others - such as the immigrant labourers working in the greenhouses at KumkÃ¶y-Ã‡iÃ§ekli in the Antalyaâ€™s Aksu district.
'Carnation' attempts to give a voice to these immigrant laborers working in the flower industry and the injustices and misery they suffer. It strives to witness their oblivion, desperation and deprivation.
