About Dry Grasses Sold out


Samet, an art teacher at a school in a remote part of Turkey, dreams of a better job at a school in Istanbul. His dreams are shattered after accusations of inappropriate conduct with a student come to light. Turkish auteur Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Once Upon a Time in Anatolia) is a master at developing complex and profound drama films. In addition to winning a Golden Palm in Cannes for his film Winter Sleep in 2014, six of his films have been selected as the Turkish entries for the Oscars.

Independent: Selections

Films from established authors and independent makers with their own style. In this program, you will see the newest films from directors who have already established their place in the canon (and in our hearts). This program largely consists of previews and Dutch premieres of those films that we will be talking about for months to come. These films cannot be skipped!
