“Tightly driven… Snow Pirates is edge of your seat stuff” – The Upcoming
In a snowbound Turkish village, three young boys – Gurbuz, Serhat, and Ibrahim – set out on a mission to gather coal for their heat-starved families. Director Faruk Hacihafizoglu ratchets up the pressure before a tense and exciting finale in this film set against the backdrop of a coup d’état and deepening repression in 1980s Turkey.
Snow Pirates was a favourite at the Berlin Film Festival this year, featuring in the Berlinale Generation Kplus selection. Don’t miss the chance to see this film while it plays at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre.
