Venue: Ciné Lumière - 17 Queensberry Place, SW7 2DT

This screening is part of our Middle East Guest Programme.

In the year of 1915, the lives of Mehmet, an ice-cream man, and Ali, a cameleer, who have been living in a small town in Australia change drastically when World War I breaks out. As two Turkish immigrants, they have to make a choice as to whether they will fight for the country they were born in (Turkey) or the country they live in and love. The two protagonists therefore decide to fight for Turkey and head to Çanakkale, although their journey won't be as easy as they initially believed it would be.
