“A formidable film… a major statement from a major director.” – Film Comment

★★★★★ “Stunning images… [a] gentle, humane, beautifully made and magnificently acted movie” – The Guardian

“Perceptive and profound. If only more family dramas took such care to get the details right.” – IndieWire

★★★★★ “Sensual and lyrical, tremendously acted… The word visionary has been flogged by the film business to the point of redundancy, but with The Wild Pear Tree, Ceylan reminds us he has earned every letter of it.” – The Telegraph

“His funniest, most politically poignant work yet… achingly personal.” – Village Voice

Sinan is passionate about literature and desperate to become a writer. Returning to the village where he was born, he pours his heart and soul into scraping together the money he needs to be published, until his father’s debts catch up with him.

A deeply moving and visually stunning countryside tale of the coinciding destinies of fathers and sons, The Wild Pear Tree is touted to be one of the year’s most accomplished foreign language releases.

The follow-up to acclaimed Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Winter Sleep (recipient of the Palme d’Or – top prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival), The Wild Pear Tree was acquired by Sharmill Films out of the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and will be released theatrically in late 2018.

Michael and Dafna are devastated when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son Jonathan. Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats. While his sedated wife rests, he spirals into a whirlwind of emotions, which rival the surreal and darkly comic military experiences of his son.

Foxtrot, the sophomore feature film from director Samuel Maoz (2009's Golden Lion winner Lebanon) and Israel's official Oscar candidate, is a visually bold and emotionally powerful exploration of war, grief and family.

Winner of the coveted Grand Jury Prize at the Venice International Film Festival and recipient of eight Ophirs at the 2017 Israeli Film Awards including Best Film, Director and Actor, Foxtrot has garnered widespread praise for its unforgettable story which weaves three interconnected narratives into an overarching tale of love and loss, mixing comedy and tragedy in a wholly unique way.
