2018 Screenings

LatAm Premiere Screening

BETTER TOGETHER (Hayat Gibi)

An absorbing and heart-warming new series following a family as its relationships grow and develop over the years. Cem and Reyhan are parents to triplets, natural twins and a son they adopted when their own triplet died. These five people – ordinary, yet remarkable at the same time – will make viewers laugh and cry and will remind us of the real meaning of family, compassion, friendship, love and fidelity.

World Premiere Screening

BITTER LANDS (Tierra Amarga)

Bitter Lands is the story of a legendary love that begins in Istanbul during the 1970s and continues in the fertile lands of Cukurova in southern Turkey through the trials of evil, ambition, and tyranny.

Bitter Lands asks whether love is eternal against the facts of life and tests the resistance of love and goodness amid a series of turbulent events. On these lands that have been molded with legendary tales of bravery and epic love over the centuries, at a period when mechanization in agriculture is beginning to show its effects, where does the goodness of love begin and where does evil end?
