Dear Cinema Lovers, this September is the month of celebrations for Internations, as our community is now 10 years old; and I could not think of any better cinema activity to welcome September than this Turkish Classic, the Motherland Hotel from Protected content !

Please purchase your ticket online at Protected content
or from the ticket booth (the ticket availability is not guarenteed in the booth)

Uniq Istanbul's shuttle service runs from ITU Ayazaga Metro exit,
across Windowist every 30 minutes, you wait on the Windowist exit for a minibus (about 20 seat capacity)

Warm regards, to all...

About the movie - TUR and ENG
Yusuf Atılgan’ın ünlü eserinden, Ömer Kavur’un eliyle beyaz perdeye aktarılmış bu yapım 80’li yıllarda, küçük bir taşra kasabasında kendine kalan hanı işleten Zebercet’e odaklanır. Zebercet, bir akşam Ankara treni ile gelip, otelde tek gece kalan bir kadına karşı giderek saplantıya dönüşen bir tutku geliştirecek ve artık müşteri kabul etmediği otel ise giderek daha boğucu ve daha baskın bir hale gelecektir. Tüm zamanların en iyi yerli yapımlarından kabul edilen Anayurt Oteli, restore edilmiş özel kopyası ile seyirciyle buluşuyor.

Yusuf Atılgan’s famous novel, adapted to silver screen by Ömer Kavur, focuses on Zebercet, a manager at a hotel in a small town village in the 80’s. Zebercet’s passion for a woman who comes with the Ankara train
to stay at his hotel for one night will slowly turn into an obsession. And when he starts denying customers the hotel will become even more suffocating and overwhelming for him. Considered as one of the best examples of Turkish Cinema, Motherland Hotel meets the audience with a special restored copy of the original version.
