THE NEW WAVES

THE GULF

EMRE YEKSAN

Emre Yeksan | Turkey, Germany, Greece | 2017 | 111 min. | O.V. Turkish with English and Spanish subtitles

With a mixture of existential crisis, political metaphor, apocalyptic airs and a great visual magnetism, The Gulf is a film that moves away from the cliché to travel along surprising roads. Selim is forced to move back to his parents’ home in Izmir, an annoying interim in his life thanks to which he meets up with a former love and rediscovers an old army colleague. One day, an unbearable smell fills the city, forcing everyone (including his parents) to flee their homes. A state of siege where anything can happen, perhaps the road to certain revolution.
