The Boston Turkish Film Festival heads into the final weekend of films of its 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 begin at 5:30 PM with the North American premiere Ayaz, from director Dersu Yavuz Altun. Here’s the official write up from the festival website:

Hasan’s family provokes him to kill his sister-in-law. He finds himself deserted with her only child, his nephew. In between his love and guilt, he suffers a silent punishment of a little boy while hoping that he could be his very own family.

The second screening today is 8:00 PM,  the North American Premiere drama Siren’s Call, from director Ramin Matin:

Weary of Istanbul’s building boom, Tahsin who is an architect plans his escape by going to meet Siren, a woman enjoying a natural life in the country. But things don’t go quite as planned in this black comedy that pokes fun at consumer society.

Both screenings takes place at the Remis Auditorium at the Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington St, Boston. Tickets for “Ayaz” are here; tickets for “Siren’s Call” are here.
