Director Emre Yeksan gives us a film of passion and pain, a tour de force for the main actor in this naturalistic and almost animal performance and some food for thoughts about how progress can be too often dangerous and violent towards nature. His experience with the Biennale College Cinema programme was hectic and stressful but very rewarding, indeed.

Yuva: Veysel’s wild solitary life in the woods is disrupted when the land he inhabits is sold to investors. One day, his younger brother Hasan comes from the city to convince him to leave. As the imminent threat of the eviction rapidly grows, the belated confrontation of the two brothers leads to the discovery of a magical home: a universe under the earth.
