The Waterfall

Film

Time Out says

Southeast Turkey, May 1960, and the ideological conflict between two men, father and uncle to the youngster Cermal, is overtaken by the threat to the local waterfall, where women relay their dreams. After several stylistically diverse opening sequences, including a dream episode that plays a little like Buñuel directing Brazil, this engaging drama of transitions large and small, personal and public, pitches political differences and family rivalries alongside a rites of passage tale and a lightly interrogatory exploration of a society on the cusp of major incursions to its established orders, domestic, civic, military and religious.
