I Was, I Am, I Will Be

Available May 28 at noonJune 10 at 11:59 pm only

After a Kurdish gigolo and an airline pilot meet at a Turkish resort, their lives change in unexpected ways. Given the opportunity to study and work in Germany, Baran moves from a troubled past to a complicated present, with the prospect of a promising future not far beyond his grasp. Meanwhile, his mentor Marion bravely confronts unanticipated challenges. In his second feature, director/co-writer Ilker Çatak, a former Student Oscar winner, boldly challenges stereotypes and expectations to create a touching humanist drama.
