The Larnaca Cinema Society and the Office of the European Parliament in Cyprus, present the films that are competing for this year's LUX Audience Award.
The film 'Burning Days' is a boldly stylized film that mixes western and neo-noir iconography with sharp social criticism.
2022, Drama / thriller, 131'
Language: Turkish with Greek subtitles
The screenings are followed by a 15-minute discussion.
Synopsis: Emre, a young and dedicated prosecutor, is assigned to a small town plagued by water shortages and political scandals. Although he feels welcome at first, his meetings soon become heated and ends up becoming involved in the local political scene. When Emre gets closer to the owner of the local newspaper, rumors fly and tensions rise.
Explosive from the very first scene and riveting until the end credits, this insightful allegory about homo-sociality and power, invents a new language to condemn a society made by men. Mainly, however, it deals with their internal conflicts and subtle manipulations.
