Do you know about the Onur Ünlü programme? LTFF is hosting a retrospective of the films of director Onur Ünlü, whose very individual work has been little seen in the UK. One of SIX of his films to be shown at this year's LTFF is 'Five Cities' (Beş Şehir) winner of the Best Screenplay award at the 46th Int. Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival.

Life, love and death link the seemingly unconnected lives of a policeman, a shop assistant, a student, a market salesman and an 11 year-old boy. Policeman Aydın is trying to get used to life after being recently assigned to work in Istanbul. He falls in love with sweetshop assistant Mehtap but whatever he does, he just cannot get her to notice him. At the same time university student Şevket cannot get the attention of Dilek, who works in the same shop. When Aydın encounters Dilek his desires change course…

Tickets are available at the following links, this film is rated Cert. 15.

Here's another taster of a film that's apart of the 20th London Turkish Film Festival! In Ömer Uğur's sharp and satirical comedy, 'Rumbling Hearts' (Guruldayan Kalpler) unemployed Yaşar goes from the bottom of the economic ladder to the rarefied atmosphere of the Istanbul art world after a chance encounter with surrealist/futuristic metal sculptor Hülya. A monster creation called "Chaos" causes just that as well as ample opportunities for the energetic comedy talents of Necip Memili as Yaşar, creator of a more mundane piece of art made from a noodle dish and called "Rumbling Hearts!"

Have you checked out any of the feature documentary films that LTFF is showing? You're definitely missing out if you haven't - here's a little bit about 'Little Black Fishes' (Küçük Kara Balıklar):

Stories of Kurdish childhood are recounted by some of those who witnessed and experienced the hellish existence of growing up in southeast Turkey in troubled times. In fact these were children with no childhood, kids just trying to survive a life of physical and mental suffering. But many did survive and some now provide a vivid picture of a world seen through the eyes of a child, and the events which have shaped their lives and beliefs.

Tickets are available right now:

The screening on Saturday 16 May will be followed by a Q&A with two of the directors, Cem Terbiyeli and Önder Ince.

For it’s 20th year, the London Turkish Film Festival is awarding its Lifetime Achievement Award to a remarkable Turkish cinema and television actor born in Adana in 1949, with a career spanning an extraordinary 44 years.

Aytac Arman was studying architecture and engineering when his friends entered him without his knowledge into the first of two competitions that would kick-start his career. The first, a competition called “Cinema King” by newspaper “Ekstra Expres” in 1959 and “SES” magazine’s cover star competition in 1971, where he was the runner up to Tarik Akan. Arman’s career started almost immediately after this, gaining attention with a role in Yilmaz Guney’s “Baba”.

Arman soon started playing lead characters, with some of his most memorable roles in films such as Zeki Okten’s “Dusman” (for which he was awarded Best Male Actor by the Turkish Film Critics Association in 1981), and Omer Kavur’s “Gece Yolculugu” (his performance was awarded with the Golden Orange for Best Actor) as well as several television appearances, the most recent being “Kara Para Ask”.

He has appeared in over 50 film and television productions.
