I am Cansu. I was raised in Istanbul, and now based in New York. I am 26 and spending my days reading, writing, and talking about films and the cinematic expression.

I have graduated from Boğaziçi University with a major in Economics and a minor in Film Studies. I was amazed by every aspect of the cinematic culture so I decided to become an academic in this field. I am currently a graduate student in Cinema Studies at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. 

I base my writings mostly on my personal ideas and opinions, my interpretations of the stuff I learned during the lectures, during my internships, and on some readings.


  • I am a vegetarian, occasionally a vegan.
  • My flatmate is the coolest orange cat.
  • I do contemporary dance, crossfit, boxing, and practice yoga.
  • I am a CMAS 2* scuba diver.
  • I’ve been to 24 countries—and counting.
