Cemre Asarli talks to us about her experience as associate producer on the film Yellow Heat, by Fikret Reyhan, here in Lecce’s official competition. Focusing mainly on Yellow Heat‘s festival strategy, Cemre confesses that, ultimately, the most valuable advice for all the producers out there is to simply and firmly believe in the project they are part of. We second that emotion.
Yellow Heat: In a field surrounded and squeezed by increasing industrialization, an immigrant family, deep in financial debt, struggles to survive through traditional farming. Their son, Ibrahim, determined to find his own way, dreams of a different future for himself. Ibrahim is surrounded by not only his family’s feudal circumstances but also the merciless system of the region. However, he finds that it is not so easy to turn a dream into reality. His actions will have many unexpected consequences for both himself and for his family. Yellow Heat aims to tell the story of people who are affected by the change of production relations and in parallel by the change of the capital.
