Dir. Emin Alper
2022 | Turkey | Drama/Mystery | 130 min | Turkish with English subtitles | NC16 (Some Coarse Language and Mature Content)

Emre, a young and dedicated prosecutor, is newly appointed to a small town hit by a water crisis and political scandals. After an initial welcome, he experiences an increasing number of tense interactions and is reluctantly dragged into local politics. When he forms a bond with the owner of the local newspaper, pressure escalates under heated rumours.

Programmer’s Note: Emin Alper, who last made A Tale of Three Sisters (2019), is one of Turkey’s most underrated directors. With Burning Days, we see him reach new filmmaking heights with a terrific slow-burn of a psychological thriller, exploring themes of power plays, injustice, the veracity of ‘truths’ and character assassination. Alper builds beat-by-beat, layer-by-layer, a sense of mounting dread and tension, culminating in one of the strongest and most satisfying denouements of the year.

Awards: Nominee – Un Certain Regard Award & Queer Palm (Cannes Film Festival); Won Best Editing (European Film Awards)
