Motherland (Anayurdu) by Senem Tüzen (2015, 100 min.). Nesrin is an upper middle-class urban woman recovering from divorce. She has quit her office job, abandoned her house in Istanbul, and come to her parent’s old village in Anatolia to finish a novel and live out her childhood dream of being a writer. When her conservative and increasingly unhinged mother turns up uninvited, Nesrin’s writing stalls and her fantasies of village life turn bitter as the two are forced to confront the dark corners of each other’s inner worlds.
