About me

Born in Istanbul and based in London, Asli is a versatile filmmaker with a particular interest in memory, existentialism and feminist cinema. After graduating with a BA in Philosophy and Film Studies, Asli pursued an MFA in Media and Design and taught documentary and film history. As an avid cinephile, she started playing around with found footage material under the supervision of video artist Volker Schreiner. Around the same time, she completed her first short documentary, Protest (2012), that has shown at several festivals nationwide. In 2013, Asli was accepted on an MA course at The London Film School and moved to London. During her time at the school, she wrote and directed both fiction and documentary films. Her mid-course fiction film We Were Waves Once (2015) premiered at Toronto Inside Out Film Festival and has been screened in many others including the BAFTA qualifying London Short Film Festival. In 2016, she started her own film production company Studio ASBO and has been working as a freelance videographer and editor. She is also currently in pre-production for her next short film, a sci-fi drama about immortality through mind upload to synthetic copies. She owns various camera equipment and points her camera at anything that she finds inspiring.
