Düet [Duet] [OmeU], TR 2022, R: Idil Akkus & Ekin Ilkibag, mit Defne Bakirci, Misra Gundes, 72 Min
Mısra and Defne are two close friends and duet partners, who met each other through synchronized swimming, with their totally different characters. After failing to qualify for the 2016 Olympics, they set a shared goal, the 2020 Olympics. While struggling to make this dream happen, they try to cope with numerous problems such as the poorly run federation and the Covid-19 pandemic. Fighting for success in a suppressive country for women and LGBT İ +, the duet partners will have to give a hard decision whether to keep the fight or to find new paths in life.
Flanöz [Flaneuse] [OmeU], TR 2023, R: Vahit Saritas, mit Emine Durmus, Meryem Demir, Ilgin Saritas, 40 Min
Emine (70), due to the recent death of her husband, is supposed to leave her hometown, which she has not left all her life.
Although leaving the village is painful for Emine, it is hard to persuade her nine children to let her stay there alone, especially after her heart attack.
Emine has two conditions for moving to the city: trading in her animals and waiting for forty days after her husband’s death. However, she increases the price of the animals and so, day by day it becomes more difficult not only to sell the animals but also for Emine to survive alone in the village. As she tries to recall the poems she wrote, Emine struggles to say goodbye to her past.
