Day five kicks off at 5 PM with the North American premiere of the drama Debt, from director Vuslat Saraçoğlu. Here’s the official write up from the festival website:

Tufan who works at a small print shop lives in Eskişehir with his wife Mukaddes and daughter Simge. Huriye, their lonely neighbour next door falls ill one night. A doctor recommends that she shouldn’t stay on her own. Tufan takes pity on Huriye, who has no family to turn to, and decides to host her at his house. Through fear and anxiety, Tufan’s kindness is put to test.

Tonight’s second screening at 7:30 PM is the New England premiere of the comedy “Family Matters” from director Ozan Açıktan:

The neurotic Fikret and tavern singer Solmaz, whose 21 year-long relationships end on the same day, meet through a funny coincidence. When Solmaz’s daughter Zeynep decides to marry her lover from Adana, the ever-fearful Fikret ends up having to play the role of his life. Intended at first to be kept in the family, the wedding becomes a much bigger event upon the insistence of the groom’s relatives.

Both screenings take place at the Remis Auditorium at the Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington St, Boston. Tickets for both screenings can be purchased through the MFA website. Tickets for “Debt” are here; and tickets for “Family Matters” are here.
