Aslı Özge garnered best film awards with her debut feature Men on the Bridge from Istanbul, Ankara and Adana film festivals, while her second feature Lifelong premiered at the 63. Berlin Film Festival. The film´s central characters are a married couple which are emotionally distressed because they do not break-up although separating would be the solution to their problems. Ela is a respected artist, Can is a successful architect. They live in a stylish house Can designed for them, in one of Istanbul´s most prestigious neighbourhoods. Though the passion has mostly gone out of their relationship, mutual respect and admiration keep their union afloat. That is, until Ela overhears one of Can´s phone conversations... "People, even if they are unhappy are capable of convincing themselves that the way things are, the life they have isn´t so bad after all. One might turn a blind eye to reality, choose to pretend there are no problems, that everything is all right. That makes it harder to find the courage to change, to move towards the new and the unknown. By hiding behind the marriage, Ela and Can pretend not only in front of others, but with each other, and finally even try to fool themselves." - Aslı Özge

The cast and crew will be introducing the film on 9 APRIL TUESDAY, ATLAS, 19.00
