About Dry Grasses


The prolific Turkish auteur returns with his ninth feature, an uncomfortable Chekhovian drama about a young teacher in a remote village accused of sexual abuse by a student. Ceylan employs inertia and silence to quarry the social frustrations and romantic triangles restless in the bipolar climate of the rugged Anatolian landscape. His elegiac masterpiece is embellished with some phenomenal performances, with Dizdar winning the Best Actress award at Cannes.
