Fortnight 1982, Feature film,


At depicts the harsh social reality of tthe everdydaylife of turkish peasants. Legends and myths are a part of this reality and are still strongly impregnating the behaviour and imagination of these simple people. The film is the story of a father and his son, from a small village in Anatolia, and at the same time the description of a large metropolis: Istambul, shown under aspects that tourists don not want to or cannot know: a magnificent town where millions of unemployed people, coming from the anatolian country, as the two heros of the film, can hardly survive. It is the life of a man which is at stake here: there will be a fatal outcome. Kenan ORMANLAR
