Festival followers, screened yesterday as part of the National Feature Film Competition, Erdem Tepegoz directed by In the Shadows It started with the screening of the movie. Erdem Tepegöz, producers Umut Özçorlu and Figen Ermek Özçorlu and one of the actors of the movie, Emrullah Çakay answered the questions of the audience in the interview that took place after the movie. Director Erdem Tepegöz said the following about the film: “While I was writing the script, I had a fundamental question; “What are we in?” The world was such a metaphor for me. We are in the world, we have a lot of philosophical and scientific interpretations of where we came from. We generate a lot of uncertain thoughts about where we are going. While questioning what we are actually in, I realized that it would be easier to find answers to these questions through plastic in a timeless, spaceless world in post-apocalyptic and science fictional texts. Actually, my aim was not to find answers, but to share the questions I asked with the audience through the film.”
Another competition film screened at the festival is Cagil Bocut signed Sardinia it happened. Cagil Bocut, producer Caglar Bocut, lead actor Ali Seçkiner Buyer met with the audience in the hall after the screening. Director Cagil Bocut, who made his first feature film with Sardunya, said the following about his film, which includes autobiographical elements: “We have been through a story similar to the movie. Of course, there are much more dramatic elements here, but our father had a stroke, we hurried back to Izmir with my brother Çağlar, who is also my producer. We had a father from Turkey, an authoritarian, whose authority was not questioned, but a loving but more angular father. At that time, there was a fracture with paralysis and we saw another person at that time, frankly, we were affected by him. At that time, I started to form questions in my head. I started to think about the father-daughter relationship, the health bureaucracy, our attitude towards diseases, the study of the family as a class, the concept of the sanctified family. After that, a script phase continued. Father-son stories are told too much in Turkey, and we are bored with male protagonists. That’s why we went through a transformation to make it a father-daughter story.”
Another film that was screened for the first time in Ankara as part of the 32nd Ankara Film Festival. Emre Kayis directed by Anatolian Leopard it happened.
