Film Screening: Made in Europe by Inan Temelkuran
Thursday, October 8
98 min | Drama | 2007 (Turkey)
Stories of Turkish people living in three European cities Madrid, Paris, and Berlin. Most are illegal immigrants, and while seeking for permits or living in hide outs they go through life dealing with humiliation, insecurities, betrayals, self-pity. The stories reflect the schizophrenic nature of the immigrant world, which turns the movie into something more than life in Europe.
Inan Temelkuran was born in 1976 in Izmir, studied law in Ankara, and studied film making in Spain. Wrote, directed and produced Made in Europe and Bornova Bornova, both of which won awards in festivals and are part of TurkishFilmChannel catalog.
