WW1 Anniversary Films

THE LONG WAY HOME

At the Battle of Sarikamis in 1915, some 90,000 Ottoman troops froze to death after an ill-advised offensive against the Russian army. Seven shattered survivors, soldier and civilian alike, find themselves huddled around a fire in an Armenian village. They are desperate to survive but unable to trust one another, whether because of class divisions, ethnicity or war-ravaged paranoia and devolve into further bloodshed and madness. Alphan Eseli's impressive debut film won a Special Jury Prize at the 2013 Montreal Film Festival.

DIR/SCR/PROD Alphan Eseli; SCR Serdar Tantekin; PROD Oguz Peri. Turkey, 2013, color, 115 min, DCP. In Turkish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
