US premiere!
Directed by Semih Kaplanoğlu (creator of the acclaimed Egg, Milk, and Honey trilogy), Turkey’s official Oscar entry stars Kübra Kip in an intense, nuanced performance as Aslı, a woman confronting the dilemma of being a working mother. After hiring a babysitter for her infant so she can resume her career as a bank executive, Aslı is forced to confront secrets she has been keeping even from herself. Her emotional dilemmas play out mainly in the lush yet claustrophobic confines of her luxury Istanbul apartment, where the presence of the young childcare provider she hires forces her to confront her own privilege and prejudices. (Dir.: Semih Kaplanoğlu, Turkey, 2019, 135 min., DCP, Turkish with English subtitles
