About About Dry Grasses

Longing to escape the isolation of his quiet Anatolian village, disenchanted art teacher Samet wrestles with narcissistic ideas of unfulfilled potential.

While battling accusations of inappropriate behaviour at his school, he unexpectedly strikes up a friendship with Nuray, a charismatic fellow teacher. But when her affection moves to Samet’s more affable colleague, he becomes jealous and begins to compete for her attention. Breathtaking cinematography and outstanding performances from the director of Winter Sleep and Once Upon a Time in Anatolia.
