On a building wall, the silhouette of a smaller house can be seen. Another wall disappears, except for one beam of light seen in the dark. While catching the light with a camera, filmmakers have been interested in shadow for 120 years as well. Some have made them the protagonists of their films. After our exploration through film history, the projector light becomes our lamp, the cinema becomes our film workshop. The little and big film goers make a city with shadow itself and create a new, original film in the cinema itself.
