DIRECTOR: Semih Kaplanoglu - TURKEY

Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, Kaplanoglu’s film orbits around the fragile early childhood of the autobiographical central character, Yusuf, and his relationship with his father. Seen through the child’s eyes, the father—a wild-honey collector living in an isolated mountain region—is an adored presence who helps unlock the secrets of the forest. Yusuf’s dreamy, interior world is threatened by the reality of school (he suddenly develops a stutter) and his father’s dangerous work. Soulful and visually ravishing, this lyrical film is imbued with a hazy timelessness that slowly unravels along with the boy’s cocooned way of life. “A beautiful meditation on familial love and the mysteries of nature.”—Hollywood Reporter. (103 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Angel’s Fall (05), Egg (07), Milk (08).

Sponsored by Southpark Restaurant.



Interests: Narrative Feature.
