My Father’s Wings (Babamın Kanatları) directed by Kıvanç Sezer (2016, 101 min.).
Set against the backdrop of construction activity promising to fill empty spaces of the urban landscape with entirely new neighborhoods, a story unfolds of an aging construction worker who, unlike his peers, has to drop all plans for the future after being diagnosed with a malignant tumor. This self-assured debut contemplates the dignity of the individual within the context of modern Turkish society.
Followed by a Q&A with the director.
