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 (KÄ±z Ã‡ocuÄŸu), 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.
