Meteors (2017)

Meteorlar
2017 | TurkeyGürcan Keltek★★★★★

Gürcan Keltek's remarkable Meteors is a thoughtful, visually distinctive experimental docu-fiction exploring the intersection between the Kurdish plight and the natural world, driven by the alluring combination of spectacular black and white digital imagery and Ebru Ojen's quietly affecting narration.

"They come at night and everybody steps out. They light torches and remember those who have walked these streets before them. In the coming hours, the city will be on lockdown: an eclipse appears and meteors start to fall." Festival Scope
