Turtles Can Fly (R2) in September
ICA Projects have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Turtles Can Fly for 19th September 2005 priced at £19.99. A hopeful, profoundly compassionate film set in director Bahman Ghobadi's native Kurdistan, close to the Turkey-Iran border. Soran is a 13-year-old boy who orders other children around as he installs an antennae for villagers keen to hear of Saddam's fall. Eventually, he falls for Agrin but is disturbed by her brother Henkov, who was left armless after he stepped on a landmine and who can now seemingly predict the future.
Presented in anamorphic widescreen with Kurdish stereo sound and English subtitles.
