We are pleased to announce that ATA-NC and the Cary Theater will be screening the acclaimed 2016 documentary Young Wrestlers (in Turkish: Genç Pehlivanlar), winner of the "Special Mention Jury Kplus" Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale). 

The film is in Turkish with English subtitles. From the film's website:

 

The 26 boys living at the sports academy in the Turkish province of Amasya will endure a lot to realize their wrestling dream. In Young Wrestlers (Genç Pehlivanlar) they face the usual challenges of adolescence in a male dominated environment and contradictory contemporary Turkey.

The camera remains observational and discreet while still allowing us to experience their everyday life at close range – somewhere between camaraderie and competition.
