Mevsim Sonu [End of Season] (2014)
Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen
Turkish with English subtitles

Mevsim Sonu [End of Season] was filmed in Üyüklütatar - a small farming village in northwestern Turkey by the River Meriç that marks a section of the border between Turkey and Greece. Until recently the river was the busiest entry point into Europe for illegal migrants. Üyüklütatar is losing its young generation, who migrate to cities to work in factories rather than work on the farms and a group of Romas come as seasonal workers and camp at the village edge. These three notions of migration are explored in Mevsim Sonu, which was filmed during the rice harvest season in 2012.

Following the screening, Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen will give a public talk (English) on his film. The program will be broadcast simultaneously at SALT Ulus.

Mevsim Sonu was filmed during a four month residency at PiST///Research and Production Residency: PIRPIR, with the kind support of Danish Arts Agency and Danish Art Council.
