“Remarkable! Genuinely beautiful and haunting.”
Chicago Tribune

“An arthouse film par excellence … DISTANT is in the best tradition of serious, elegantly made Euro cinema.”

“As startling as anything Tarkovsky devised…”
The New Yorker

Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s breakthrough film shows us a clash of old and new ways of life as a young man from a rural village in Turkey moves in with his sophisticated cousin in Istanbul. A deeply observant and humane work of art. Free Member Monday — free admission for all AFS members on November 14.
