Today’s Existence - Released in 2010

Directed, written and produced by Cengiz Õzgök
Starring Chris Mennen

Urban suburbs give shape to silent, stone symbols of the contemporary performance culture. In this cold and unimaginative world with “Vinex” houses (new towns, shopping centers and office blocks) and its commuters, the protagonist, metaphorically performed by actor Chris Mennen (Amsterdam, 1965), moves into a life devoid of social contact and sincere love.

The relationship with his wife is perfunctory and also his feelings for their children are dulled. Caught in the illusion which he is desperately trying to keep up, the main character is slowly but surely submerging.

Film-maker C.Ö. about this: ”I wonder if the human being in his present genetic compound has a lot going for himself to meet the needs of all the desires and requirements. Disconnected from nature, alienated from things that makes life simple, man, I think, is doomed to fail. A superman would be a godsend, an evolved homo-sapiens effortlessly taking all obstacles and still needs to achieve.”

The main character in the movie is at least aware that he is not a superman. However there is nothing else for him than to move on as he does. Abrupt putting a stop to this and resist the disapproval of your environment simply requires much strength and guts. He maintains the façade as long as it can and continues his fateful road, gasping for breath.
