Fried Chicken

Director: Serdar YILMAZ.
In a family made up of a grandmother, daughter and a 9-year old granddaughter, granddaughter is forced to eat.

While the Fried Chicken is a monstrous and aversive thing for the little girl, it turns in to a four - meter -long avant-garde object that is pulled over by the (same) man behind the curtain under cheers in an isolated corner (street) populated by the homeless.

Nuri Bilge Ceylan: "I watch all kinds of films, but as a viewer I love films for children most"

user
You chose to go with your team to some villages near Sofia. Did you find any interesting places? We toured several villages across the gorge of the Iskar River. I think the most interesting place we found was an old, completely deserted railway station. There were no people and the small building was full of remnants of past life. Among the waste, bird nests and broken things, I found a very old writing desk. It was astonishing that on the inner side of one of its doors were post...

Q&A with Reis Çelik at İstanbul Film Festival

user
“Men are in the gloom!” Director Reis Çelik talks about his film, Night of Silence in the National Competition.

The film returned with a Crystal Bear from Berlin Film Festival, and its journey in T...

It unspooled gently, letting you seep into the high, windy, seer landscape and the lives thrown together by an investigation: the prosecutor, the doctor, the chief of police, and many others, being led about the countryside by a handcu...
