WINTER SLEEP Gets Screened at Cinema One Originals!

Nuri Blige Ceylan’s highly praised film Winter Sleep will soon find its way to our local shores as the said epic will be screened at this year’s Cinema One Originals filmfest.


The aforementioned movie is one of the contenders for the Best Foreign Language Film category in next year’s Oscars ceremonies alongside Lav Diaz’ Norte. It also had bagged two awards during the recently concluded Cannes festival.

Winter Sleep is the tale of a wealthy, retired actor who dreams of playing God. Grey-bearded Aydin (Haluk Bilginer) possesses the appropriate bearing, timbre and confidence for the role. But his moral compass is faulty and his subjects won’t play ball. Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s heavyweight Palme d’Or contender sends Aydin slipping and sliding towards the rocks of self-awareness.

Cinema One Originals will run from November 9 to 18. Check out the trailer for this award winning movie above.
