FILM DESCRIPTION

Having recently swept the International Antalya Film Festival—Turkey’s largest—winning Best Film, Director and Script, helmer Ümit Köreken’s debut feature Blue Bicycle, set in picturesque, rural Anatolia, chronicles the story of 12-year-old Ali—an endearing pupil who masterminds an underground campaign to reinstate Elif—his flame—as class representative in defiance of the school’s stern headmaster. Working as a car mechanic after school and helping his mother selling her weaves, Blue Bicycle is the beguiling tale of a young boy’s fight for justice.
