THE ANNOUNCEMENT

Turkey/Bulgaria, 2018, 94’

On 22 May 1963, a group of military officers try to get to Istanbul
Radio headquarters to announce a successful coup d’état. The people
and events that they come across along the way show them life
experiences that are foreign to them. The civic life that has passed
by them throughout the night, with the richness and complexity it
harbours, finally crushes them with its invisible, interminable power.
