Directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Turkey, France, Germany, 2023, 197 min.). Turkish with English subtitles.

From Palme d’Or winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Winter Sleep) comes the engrossing tale of Samet, a young art teacher finishing his fourth year of compulsory service in a remote village in Anatolia. After accusations of inappropriate behavior with a student surface, Samet’s hopes of escape fade and he descends further into existential crisis—until a colleague named Nuray, herself a teacher, offers some perspective. Starring Merve Dizdar, who won the 2023 Cannes Film Festival Best Actress award for her performance.
“Alarming and daring. It’s a rich, challenging film, a blizzard of experience and ideas.” —Time Out
