TRK 2016, Directors: Bariş Kaya, Soner Caner, 94 min., feature film, OV with English subtitles, released 6, recommended 8

When 9-year-old Rauf doesn’t want to go to school anymore, his father sends him to a carpenter to become an apprentice. The carpenter mainly earns a living by making coffins since guerilla warfare is raging in the mountains in Northeastern Turkey. Again and again the rumble of artillery invades the darkness of the meager homes. Rauf learns quickly, fueled by the affections of Zana, the carpenter’s daughter, who is twice Rauf’s age. All too eagerly, he accepts her request to bring her a pink scarf from the city. The only problem is: he has no idea what the color “pink” looks like. Once he finds out, it’s too late. Subtly and with a gentle melancholy, this film recounts a coming-of-age tale and leaves an impression with its grandiose landscape imagery. (DS)
