Waiting For The Clouds
For her third feature, acclaimed Turkish filmmaker Yesim Ustaoglu (Journey To The Sun) weaves a moving tale about the meaning of identity and the power of home.
Along Turkey's northeastern Black Sea coast, beautiful valleys shrouded in mist hide the country's bloody past. After the Turkish War of Independence in the early 1920s, Greeks were fully deported. Now some 50 years later, an elderly woman looks back on her life following the death of her sister. Her grief threatens to expose that her family is actually Greek, not Turkish, and compels her to search for a long-lost brother in Greece.
