Boston Turkish Festival's 18th Documentary & Short Film Competition (2023)

This Saturday is a Turkish wedding day at Espace Venise. Huddled in a car in the parling lot, Fatih, 21, wants to get married. He has set his sights on Ipek, Recep’s sister. But neither Murat, his best friend, nor Recep, nor even Ipek are aware of this yet.



Onur Yağız (1986) was born in France to Turkish parents. He studied literature, theatre and film at the Sorbonne-Nouvelle University, before directing Patika (2013) and Toprak (2017). Fatih the Conqueror is his third film.
