The Turkish feature film "FUAD" was promoted at the Yunus Emre Institute (YEI) in Sarajevo.
Starring Emre Kızılırmak and Tuvana Türkay, the film tells the story of Fuad, who witnessed his father murdering his mother when he was five years old, grows up to become a policeman and was exiled to the village of İkizdere in Ardahan, where he was born, as a result of his harsh treatment of criminals who commit violence against women.
At the event held in the cinema hall of the Sarajevo Yunus Emre Institute, an interview was held with actor Emre Kızılırmak after the screening of the film.
In his speech here, Kızılırmak said, "Our movie has been to several festivals. I wanted to make such a gesture even before the sale was finalized. Organizing such an event with the contributions of Sarajevo Yunus Emre Institute and TRT is very meaningful for me because there are many people here who want to learn Turkish voluntarily. We need to be able to reflect to them not only our language, how we construct sentences, but also our culture and our movies."
THE SCRIPT OF THE MOVIE IS BASED ON TRUE STORIES
Explaining that showing Turkish films to those who want to learn Turkish will increase intercultural interaction, Kızılırmak emphasized that the event was organized accordingly.
Kızılırmak said, "There are many things to say about the movie. It's the first movie I produced. I also played the lead role. It was written and directed by Erdal Rahmi Hanay. Valuable names worked hard to bring our movie to life. The movie we shot in Ardahan in winter has a script inspired by real stories."
Underlining that he was happy to have produced a "good film", Kızılırmak said that although they did not officially participate in the 28th Sarajevo Film Festival, which was held in Bosnia and Herzegovina between August 12-20, 2022, they met people and promoted the film at the event.
