About this submission
(This'is a preview copy.) Sermest is a film about the spiritual journey of a young man, inspired by the story of Bayezid, one of the important figures of Sufi literature. Although there are dozens of ancient literary sources that tell the insight of Sufi culture, it deeply saddens me that these works have no counterpart in cinema. To transfer these stories to the cinema, it is necessary to create a narrative style that is directly related to the understanding of Sufism. The special reason I chose this story is my irresistible desire for the proper creation of this cinematographic form.
