poster About Dry Grasses (Nuri Bilge Ceylan, TR 2023)
Samet (Deniz Celiloglu) is a quick-witted but hot-tempered drawing teacher and amateur photographer at the primary school in a traditional village in Anatolia. He dreams of a job in his home city, Istanbul, but in the meantime wiles away the time nihilistically, caught up in dark fantasies. Following a series of unexpected events that he struggles to comprehend, he loses all hope of escaping his oppressive life.
