Mr. Muhsin (Muhsin Bey) directed by Yavuz Turgul (1987, 98 min.).
Şener Şen stars as Muhsin Kanadikirik, a solitary middle-aged music producer who is approached by a young man named Nazik (Uğur Yücel) who dreams of becoming a folk singer. Hesitant at first, Muhsin eventually takes Nazik under his wing and makes him a star. Mr. Muhsin was voted one of the Ten Best Turkish Films of all time by the Ankara Cinema Association.
The screening will be followed by the BTFF Excellence in Turkish Cinema Award ceremony, and a reception at Taste Café musical guests The Çay Party. Uğur Yücel will no longer be present for a Q&A following the screening due to a scheduling conflict.
Please note that a 3-film pass cannot be used for this event.
