BEYOND THE HILL directed by Emin Alper

BEYOND THE HILL directed by Emin Alper

We are happy to announce that Tribeca Film festival had invite So Independent as a co-presenter of BEYOND THE HILL directed by Emin Alper – a film from the narrative competition program of the festival.

This is great honor for us – So Independent is the first Bulgarian festival mentioned as a partner in an international film festival of such caliber. Tribeca Film Festival draws about three million viewers, international talent and stars from film and music fields and claims an income of 600 million dollars a year.

So Independent had chosen to co-present BEYOND THE HILL because this title is a perfect match for their festival’s mission and concept that they follow for the past ten years – to present the Bulgarian and South-East European cinema to America and the world.

In the quiet foothills of Turkey, Faik lives an isolated existence. When his second son brings his boys for a visit, Faik takes the opportunity to pontificate about the law of the land, as he sees it. He shares one unsolicited thought after the next, most particularly focusing on the elusive nomads whom he suspects have been trespassing on his property. The day and night wear on, and each member of the clan takes his turn entrusting the film’s audience with his own dark secret.

In his feature debut, Emin Alper demonstrates a level of skill and subtlety in execution that earns him the distinction of a talent to watch. His use of space and setting creates a strikingly ominous narrative out of the simplicity of topography and facial expression. These landscapes—whether Faik’s hills or a twisting grimace in close-up—become the driving dramatic forces within the story. Masterfully evoking tension through isolation, landscape, and unspoken conflict, Alper conveys that what lies beyond the hill may be far less damaging than what is within your walls.
