Gürcan Keltek’s poetic first feature captures a critical moment in the Turkish-Kurdish conflict via otherworldly black-and-white images, largely filmed with disarming immediacy by Southeast Turkish locals. Meteors repurposes this archival footage and combines it with intimate interviews and oneiric scenes of life in Southeast Anatolia to yield a panoramic view of Turkey in a moment of existential and political upheaval; the reverberations of the fight for Turkey’s future find expression in mountains dotted by rams and hunters and chaotic city streets littered with debris and protesters alike. Transcending fiction and nonfiction to arrive at a political truth somewhere in between, Meteors is a transfixing work featuring a cosmic ending not to be missed. U.S. Premiere
