Times and Winds ( Bes Vakit )

This award-winning and critically acclaimed film follows the lives of three friends on the verge of adolescence in a remote Turkish mountain village. Struggling variously with deeply felt familiar rage and responsibilities, burgeoning sexuality and guilt-ridden desire, the children find themselves detached from the customs and traditions of their community and consumed by the ennui of daily village life. A hypnotic and beautifully observed portrait of a parochial society, disaffected youth and the end of innocence.
