Turkish filmmaker Pelin Esmer will introduce and present her award-winning feature Watchtower. The film follows two souls who struggle with haunted pasts in the remote hills of the Turkish countryside in this powerful feature from a rising star of international cinema. After the screening, there will be time for questions.
Esmer was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey. She began her career by taking classes from Yavuz Ozkan, a legendary Turkish director, then began lecturing on documentary filmmaking at Istanbul’s Kadir Has University, all while working on foreign projects. In 2005 Esmer founded her own film company, Sinefilm. Her first film is called Oyun (The Play), and received many awards around the world.
Watchtower is her second film and has won five awards at the Adana Golden Boll International Film Festival, including Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor and best Cinematography.

“If you’re a fan of obscure horror films, then you’ve experienced extreme boredom. You’ve sat through lame red herrings, endless chase scenes, shower scenes with NO nudity, and all the talking and talking and talking… just for those very rare magical moments that only these films can provide.
Horror Remix takes forgotten horror classics and slices them down to a power-packed themed anthology. We dig through hours and hours of cinema boredom to find those magical moments that make obscure horror so amazing.”
All ages show. Doors open 8pm.
