TFF 2013 Trailer of the Day: ‘Jîn'

This gripping Turkish drama tells the story of a young woman caught between two warring nations as she struggles to make a life for herself.

Deniz Hasgüler gives a stirring performance as Jîn, a young Kurdish rebel-fighter who has grown tired of war and retreats into the Turkish forest. In search of peace and a family to call her own, she embarks on a journey through the dangerous wildness, amid guerilla warfare and ceaseless violence.

Turkish director Reha Erdem emphasizes  the harsh and brutal landscape of war through breathtaking cinematography, and the film’s sparse dialogue further   conveys Jîn’s isolation and longing in this stirring wartime drama.
