This evocative drama from the 2018 Turkish Film Festival returns for one night only. The latest film by Nuri Bilge Ceylan follows Sinan, a university student who returns to his parents’ home in the small town of Çan, hoping to raise money to publish a book of stories. However, his father’s gambling debts affect not only the entire family, but also Sinan’s future as an author. The Wild Pear Tree was Turkey’s selection for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2019 Academy Awards.
