Saturday, April 14

Minus One from the section “Out of Competition” was screened at Beyoğlu Sineması with the participation of the director Orhan Oğuz, and the film crew. Most of the film is set inside a vehicle and the story follows three city police officers trying to find an official institution to turn in a homeless man, all night long. The director said that the homeless man is the only person who deserves to be at the culture center from which he is kicked out, and said that the film is based on a real story even though the screenplay is fiction: “Those four people have a very unfortunate night. When my friend called me in the middle of the night to tell me about what happened, I was awestruck. So here I am after four years.” The director also added: “The film took 50 years to shoot but the post-production three months.”
