DIRECTOR: Yilmaz Erdogan - TURKEY

In 1941, with World War II looming, in Zonguldak, an impoverished mining city on the Black Sea coast of Turkey, every man in the area is required by law to work in the coal mines. Amidst the poverty, disease, and turmoil are two young poets, Muzaffer and Rustu. Their persevering dream is to have their poetry published. One day they see Suzan, the beautiful daughter of one of the city’s wealthy merchants, and make a bet over the girl: they will both write a poem for her, and whichever she likes, the other will fade from the scene…. As their lives progress, the rivalry between an optimist and a pessimist, both in search of happiness, will test not only their poetry but their bravery. This year’s Turkish submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. (138 mins.)

Filmography: Vizontele (01), Vizontele Tuuba (04), Magic Carpet Ride (05), Neseli Hayat (09).


Interests: Oscar Submissions, Narrative Feature.
