Kalandar Soğuğu / DIR: Mustafa Kara / Turkey-Hungary / 2016 / 134 min / Language: Turkish with English subtitles

FILM DESCRIPTION

Shot over four seasons with immense production challenges, Turkey’s 2017 Oscar contender Cold of Kalandar is, in its most distilled form, is the epic survival story of a family living in isolation, on the idyllic hills of Turkey’s northern Black Sea region. The unexpected arrival of harsh winter conditions brings an early halt to Mehmet’s gold prospecting hopes, bringing the family face to face with making difficult choices—like selling their only bull to clear their debt—in the face of adversity. A cinematographic masterpiece, newcomer Mustafa Kara’s Cold of Kalandar excels in the creation of tightly knit drama, drawing out tour de force performances from its entire cast, especially actor Haydar Şişman.
