“Time of Impatience” film crew met with audiences after its screening at the 9th Bosphorus Film Festival's National Feature Competition.
The film “Time of Impatience” was screened at the 9th Bosphorus Film Festival's National Feature Competition on Saturday, 23 October at Atlas 1948 Cinema with the participation of the film crew.
A Q&A session took place after the screening of the film with moderator Rıza Oylum and the participation of producer Feyzi Baran, director Aydın Orak, casts Rıza Sönmez, child actors Mirza Zarg and Mirhat Zarg, Ali Seçkiner Alıcı and Feride Çetin. Director Aydın Orak talked about the process of the film saying that “This story goes 15 years back. I started off with a picture. I saw a couple of kids trying to get into the pool of a residence. It had to wait 15 years to evolve. I had trouble deciding what to do. The script started to take shape in the last five years. We shot the film before the pandemic. We had a long course of time during the pandemic for editing. The film had its first screening last week in Warsaw. Here, it will have its first screening in Turkey.
Actress Feride Çetin identified the film as a Diyarbakır film and that it had been a long time since a film this good was made about a city, so she thought it would be valued greatly in theatres.
Actor Ali Seçkiner Alıcı on the other hand talked about the significance of the film saying that “The most important part of the film for me is that it is about unity, I care about this a lot. I wish to see more examples of it.”
