Good People: i want to post some information on the Turkish Film Festival that is opening this weekend in New York. October 21 to 28, 2006. Forumites who live in the tri-state area might like to come down and see a film and eat a Turkish meal nearby, Frogs and Turks, Ali Baba or Turkish Kitchen are good choices. This festival is right near my home and I intend to go down and see one or more films there. I hope you can come and enjoy these films, they are showing " Crossing the Bridge" which has been mentioned on this forum. I am going down on Saturday at 4pm to see Babam ve Oglum (My Father and My Son ) so please come down and enjoy Happy Viewing, LemonLady
This year Istanbul, selected by the European Union as the European Capital of Culture for the year 2010, weighs in prominently in the festival. With films such as Istanbul Hatirasi (Crossing the Bridge), Anlat Istanbul (Istanbul Tales), Politiki Kouzina (Bir Tutam Baharat/A Touch of Spice), Iki Genç Kiz (Two Girls) and Organize Isler (Organized Jobs), we hope to present the many faces of Istanbul to New York's cosmopolitan audience, while allowing those of us who know Istanbul well to catch up with the overwhelming changes this dynamic city has gone through.
The festival opens with Babam ve Oglum (My Father and My Son) directed by Çagan Irmak, Turkey's young and successful filmmaker. Babam ve Oglum is Turkey's box office hit of 2005, seen by more than four million theatregoers. So don't miss it, and don't forget to bring your handkerchiefs!
