Sinan is passionate about literature and desperate to become a writer. Returning to the village where he was born, he pours his heart and soul into scraping together the money he needs to be published, until his father’s debts catch up with him.
A deeply moving and visually stunning countryside tale of the coinciding destinies of fathers and sons, The Wild Pear Tree is touted to be one of the year’s most accomplished foreign language releases.
The follow-up to acclaimed Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Winter Sleep (recipient of the Palme d’Or – top prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival), The Wild Pear Tree was acquired by Sharmill Films out of the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and will be released theatrically in late 2018.
