Festival Anatolië: 27 - 29 October in Filmhuis Den Haag

Films, food, music & stories
From Friday 27 to Sunday 29 October, Filmhuis Den Haag offers a trip through Anatolia. There will be film, food, music and stories from an area rich in culture and history. It is a varied programme for and by residents of The Hague with a passion for this culture.

The programme centres on eleven films from 1973 to the present day, with introductions and Q&As with makers and actors. The selection includes classics like The girl with the red scarf or the recent film Albüm. The film programme is framed by a varied musical programme, many guests for talks and Q&A’s, and of course the local cuisine will play a significant role as well in our café and restaurant!

During the festival 7 films are shown with English subtitles: you will find the entire programme here.

A few highlights:
Albüm (Mehmet Can Mertoğlu, 2016, 105’, Turkish spoken, English subtitles)
A middle-class Turkish couple is far from willing to admit they used adoption as a last resort to build a family, and will do anything to keep it a secret. Afterwards a Q&A with the director and cast.

Yol (Serif Gören, Yilmaz Güney, 1982, 114’, Turkish / Kurdish spoken, English subtitles)
A harsh portrait of Turkey, its people and its authorities, shown through the stories of five prisoners given a week's home leave, and the problems they encounter in adjusting to the world outside.

Remake, remix, rip-off (Cem Kaya, 2014, 96’, Turkish/German spoken, English subtitles)
Turkey in the 1960s and 70s was one of the biggest producers of film in the world. In order to keep up with the demand, screenwriters and directors were copying scripts and remaking movies from all over the world. Name any Western hit film, there is a Turkish version to it, be it Tarzan, Dracula, The Wizard of Oz, or Star Trek. Cem Kaya investigates this Turkish ‘copy culture’ in this documentary.
