Cast: Serdar Orçin, Zeynep Tokus

Fate, the brilliantly accomplished fourth feature of Turkish writer-director Zeki Demirkubuz, is an adaptation of Albert Camus’s L’Etranger (The Outsider), transposed to present-day Istanbul. Fate is austere cinema with a blackly comic edge. Beautifully controlled, with its restrained performances, long takes and sparing use of music (apart from two brief bursts of Mahler), it is a daring and deeply compelling enquiry into the nature of personal responsibility.

Available on: 35mm
