The Canadian premiere of Ali Aydin’s film Küf, Winner of the Lion of the Future Award at the Venice Film Festival: A railroad inspector spends his days in the gorgeous Anatolian outback looking for cracks on the line and his evenings writing letters to the government looking for news about his son who disappeared 18 years ago. Basri fights bureaucracy and secrecy in the person of police inspector Murat and the spellbinding character study, with shades of Raskolnikov, is completed by a third man, Cemil, whose anti-social behaviour begs confrontation. Presented by Medium Density Fibreboard Films.
