coldofcaandar3Synopsis Mehmet is a man living with his family in a mountain village in the Black Sea region. He earns his life breeding a few animals, while passionately looking for a mineral reserve on the mountains, but his pursuit is seen useless by his family. Devastated by vain efforts, his hope is renewed with a competition. Mehmet will attend the bull fight held in Artvin, but he returns from Artvin completely lost, once again. This simple story pictures the naive portrait of a touching life, a life struggle in hardship and the relationship between nature, animals and human beings.

Director’s Profile

coldofcalandarrMustafa Kara, born in 1980, was graduated from the Department of Radio and Television of the Cumhuriyet University. His debut feature in 2006 was “Hope Island”, a co-production between Turkey and the United Kingdom.

Director’s Note

“Cold of Kalandar” comes out of a pure ‘storytelling passion’, narrating a story in a way far from artificiality, sincerely, realistically and consistently. Our prominent objective is to display little dramas, ordinary stories, family and neighborhood relationships, the relations between nature, animals and human beings in a remote and intact mountain village of the Black Sea region in order to make the modern man feel the subtle meaning of these relationships. Staying loyal to the reality while using technical and esthetical potentials of the cinema is an outstanding feature of this film.
