Orhan Eskiköy, born in 1980 in Istanbul, works as director and producer. He became known with his first feature-length movie, the co-directed documentary ON THE WAY TO SCHOOL (2009). Focusing on a lonely Turkish teacher in a remote Kurdish village, the film received support from the Sundance Institute and the Jan Vrijman Fund. In addition to screening at top festivals, it was a hit with Turkish audiences. His feature debut VOICE OF MY FATHER (co-director: Zeynel Doğan) was selected for the main competition at the 2012 Rotterdam International Film Festival and won several prizes. STONE, his second feature, received support from the Karlovy Vary IFF when it was selected for last year’s Works in Progress.
