Azra Deniz Okyay’s stunning and highly acclaimed debut film that travels the exhilarating streets of Istanbul to witness its urban transformation. The film has been well received by critics and with a great festival run, winning the Critics’ Week Grand Prix at La Biennale di Venezia.
In Istanbul, on the verge of a countrywide power surge, four characters cross paths in a neighborhood undergoing gentrification for the “New Turkey”: a mother whose son is in prison, a young dancer, a feminist artist and a shrewd middleman. Their stories intertwine during a drug deal, offering a harrowing account of contemporary Turkey.
