Austria 2014 In Turkish, German

After a decade in prison for second-degree murder, hardened but broken 35-year-old Ertan is intent on making a new start by staying away from the criminal world, but nobody really believes him. Returning to the grim streets of Vienna, he seeks out his son Mikail, now a teenager and unaware that his father even exists. Mikail dreams of being a rapper, but has turned to drug dealing and stealing to get his career started. To try and save his son from the life that ruined his own, Ertan works his way into his son’s quickly spiraling world without letting on who he really is. But what will happen when the inevitable truth is bound to come out? In German and Turkish with English subtitles.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
