Ozcan  Alper’s new film The film director Ozcan Alper, who is originally from Hamshen and has participated in Golden Apricot IFF and Directors Across Borders for many times, has shot his second film “Future Lasts Forever”. It had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September this year and has already won several prizes.
Starring are Gaye Gursel, Durukan Ordu, Sarkis Seropyan, Osman Karakoc, and Erdal Kirik. Sarkis Seropyan, who plays Andranik in the film, is the editor of the Armenian pages of Istanbul based bilingual weekly Agos. Lusin Dink and Sera Dink are amongst the film’s cast and crew: one as assistant director, the other as graphic designer.
The scenario of the film touches upon Turkey’s ethnic Turkish and Kurdish tensions. It tells about a young ethnomusicologist, Sumru, who leaves Istanbul for scientific research for her doctorate. Her trip turns out to be much longer than she could have ever imagined. She stays in Diyarbakir for three months where she had to come across memories from her own and buried past.
The film is of Turkish, German and French co-production.
It is worth mentioning that the film director Ozcan Alper has won Special prize for his first feature film “Autumn” at the 6th Golden Apricot International Film Festival. He was also in the jury of Armenian Panorama Competition in 2011 at 8th Golden Apricot IFF.
