THE CUT

Directed by Fatih Akin
FEATURE NARRATIVE 139 Minutes North American Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE CUT
Fatih Akin’s historic epic follows one man’s journey through the Ottoman Empire after surviving the 1915 Armenian genocide. Uprooted from his home in Mardin, Nazaret (A Prophet’s Tahar Rahim), pushes onwards as a forced laborer. His hope is revived when he learns that his daughters might still be alive, leading him on a journey to America in search of them.

The acclaimed German filmmaker of Turkish descent, Fatih Akin (Head On, The Edge of Heaven) is back with a story of human odyssey in the vein of Elia Kazan’s America America. Co-written by Marik Martin (Mean Streets, Raging Bull), The Cut marks an important event in 20th century history that is rarely depicted on screen, yet at the same time delivers the story of a personal quest. In the end, the fate of an individual is intimately bounded to the irresistible forces of history.
