Screening of Yarim / The Half (2016)

Directed by Çağıl Nurhak Aydoğdu.

Yarim (The Half) is the story of two halves setting out to become a whole, of the efforts made by two children to play the existing male-female roles. Fidan is a 15-year-old shepherd girl who lives in poverty with her family in a village in eastern Turkey. Her father gives her as a bride to an unknown family. Her husband, Salih, is mentally challenged; although he has a physical age of 35, his mental age is lower than Fidan’s. This screening is sponsored by the Turkish Students Association, Turkish Flagship Program, and IU Cinema. (2K DCP Presentation)
