The Sicilian Film Festival Shines a Spotlight on Turkish Cinema

The Sicilian Film Festival Shines a Spotlight on Turkish CinemaSunday, April 15th, 7pm - Miami Beach Cinematheque at Historic City Hall, 1130 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach

Films often act as a prism that refracts the issues facing a nation, and Turkish cinema in particular serves to encapsulate the cultural and social turmoil of modern-day Turkey. Marked by continually shifting ethnic demographics and politics, Turkish society struggles to reconcile modern attitudes with traditional morals and centuries-old customs; not unlike Sicily in many ways. Turkish Cinema is honored at the Sicilian Film Festival on Sunday, April 15th, at 7:00 p.m. at the Miami Beach Cinematheque, with two films, a short film The Little Girl (Kız Çocuğu), directed by Hakan Berger and the feature film, Being Italian with Signora Enrica, directed by Ali Ilhan. The producer of the film Elvan Albayrak will be in attendance. Followed by a reception, hosted by the Turkish Distributor Pamir Demirtas.
