IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! As we told you a couple weeks back, spring is the busiest season for film festivals in Metro Boston. But this year is especially crazy, because FIVE of the festivals were running their programming on the same weekend. Now, that weekend has passed, and we’re down to just two festivals for the next weekend. Much easier to choose..or is it? 🙂
So…lets get started kiddies! Boston Springs A Fethival 2018 is officially underway, and we’ll have info for all the various festivals and their schedules every day, so be sure to keep your browser turned to eCinemaBoston.com for all the latest info!
The Boston Turkish Film Festival gets underway for it’s third and final weekend of it’s 17th annual program. As always, all screenings are at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
Today’s offering is the encore screening of the Golden Globe winner for Best Foreign language film this year, In The Fade from celebrated auteur Fatih Akın. Here’s the official synopsis from the BTFF website:
Out of nowhere, Katja’s life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind-numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial of the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.
The screening starts at 7 PM at the Alfond Auditorium, and tickets can be purchased here.
BTFF will return Friday through Sunday for one more block of screenings with both new and encore offerings, shorts, and panel discussions for your choosing!
