Gutsy cinema that breaks new ground

In this psychological thriller pitting “fake news” against free speech, nightmarish hallucinations reveal a dark past. Turkish filmmaker Özçe- lik explores what it means to be a journalist today through this tale of an idealistic editor unsettled by the Orwellian manipulation of content at the TV news station where she works. Marked by strong visuals and compelling sound design, Özçelik’s first feature brilliantly juxtaposes its protagonist’s paranoia with the malignancy of the political forces at play.IN THE PRESENCE OF THE DIRECTORIN COMPETITION
