    • Muzaffer Özdemir

    Information

    The first feature to be written and directed by actor Muzaffer Özdemir, best known for his roles in Nuri Bilge Ceylan's The Small Town, Clouds Of May and Distant (for which he won the Cannes Best Actor Award) Home is a beautifully composed meditation on memories and a changing world.

    Do?an, a pessimistic and neurotic architect, longing for his homeland, revisits the countryside of his childhood for the first time in many years. His search for the familiar, however, is an elusive one and in this modern technological age he quickly discovers that time which once stood still is now fleeting, and that the tranquillity of familiar landscapes is fading.

    Poetic and resonant, Home is a serene depiction of one man's journey to find his own sense of peace amidst the conflict between nature and the ever intrusive modern age.

    Winner of The Golden Wings Digital Digiturk Distribution Award at the London Turkish Film Festival.

    Dir. Muzaffer Özdemir, Turkey 2013, 75 mins, cert. TBC
