As Film Production has been a collective of independent filmmakers in Istanbul for over ten years, bringing together filmmakers from all over the Middle East. In 2006, its co-founder Hüseyin Karabey registered it as an offical production company in order to produce "My Marlon and Brando", which has already received some international awards, thus transforming Asi Film Production into an established and successful company in the public eyes.

Resources and facilities have been built up which are now being used by a collective of filmmakers who may be temporarily based in Istanbul but tell stories from all around the region.

Asi Film produced recently "Do Not Forget Me Istanbul" with 7 international directors.

Asi Film is a collective company formed by independent filmmakers. It produces motion picture, documentary film, short film and international co-production projects and also provides production services to international filmmakers working on projects in Turkey.

More than 100 thousand people attended Labor Day demonstrations on May 1 in 1996.

The security forces and counter-insurgents began provoking each other in the early morning, leading to clashes and demonstrations all around the Istanbul neighborhood of Kadikoy. As a result, three people were killed and dozens of people were injured.

This film tries to illuminate the events of that day using documentary footage and interviews with witnesses.
