If you are going to be in New York City between April 20 and May 1, then don’t forget to check out Tribeca Film Festival 2011, a festival that was established by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff back in 2003.
In 2008, one of the directors we work with, Huseyin Karabey won Best New Film Maker award in Tribeca with his first feature Gitmek (My Marlon and Brando). Gitmek is based on the true story of Ayca’s departure from Istanbul and her extraordinary journey to the Iraqi border. At a time when many people were fleeing from East to West in search of safety, Ayca makes the opposite journey, in search of love. She is helped by immigrant artists who live in the slums of Istanbul and the mothers of long distance truck drivers who she meets at various border towns. The journey takes her through breathtaking landscapes, strange encounters and terrifying times.
