Zerre (The Particle)
(Drama) (80 min.) (2012) (Turkey) Directed by: Erdem TEPEGÖZ
This social drama collected the Golden St. George Award, the main prize at the 2012 Moscow Film Festival.
Erdem Tepegoz directs Jale Arikan, who won the Best Actress award at the same event, plays the character Zeynep, who lost her job and lives with disabled daughter and old mother in an abandoned apartment in Istanbul.
Tepegoz attempts to relate how particles and people take up a very tiny place with the universe.
“What about Zeynep, how much space does she take up in this immense universe?”
The director focuses on one crowded particle, Zeynep. What is her source? What is her aim? Where shall she disappear to?
The questions presented in this film remain provocative and shows the conditions the working class faces daily.
