The Boston Turkish Film Festival continues it’s 18th annual fest today. BTFF is a component of the overall Boston Turkish Festival, which also has a great line up of music performances to enjoy.
Today’s offerings are both encore screenings, beginning at 1 PM with an encore screening of the North American premiere Trust, from director Sefa Öztürk. Here’s the official write up from the festival website:
Ali and Meryem are an ordinary family on the surface. Meryem has a child from a previous relationship with Ferit. When Ferit reappears years later, Ali puts his wife to a test of trust. While Meryem is caught between her sense of gratitude and the agony of love, Ali’s self-esteem begins to crumble. Ferit’s murder fans the flames of distrust between them. They are too suspicious of one another to talk. During the police questioning, they cling to one another once again. Complicity becomes the glue of trust between them. Now they are a proper family.
The second encore screening today is 3:30 PM, 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.
