As part of Cannes 2011, MUBI is collaborating with La Semaine de la Critique (Critics’ Week), which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The collaboration includes free viewing of films, which were recognized in Critics’ Week throughout its history. For details of this program you can check out their announcement http://mubi.com/programs/la-semaine-de-la-critique
We are proud to announce that one of our films Gemide (On Board) directed by Serdar Akar is part of this program, and you can watch it for free until end of June 2011 (first 1000 views are free).
A sequel to “Lalelide Bir Azize”, and with the collaboration of practically the same team, Gemide is a story of four sailors who co-exist in a silt-cleaning ship, living a very routine existence, enlivened only by the tales spun by their captain. One evening one of the sailors arrives back from the harbor badly beaten and robbed. The others track down the culprits but accidentally kill one of them; to add to their problems, they have also kidnapped a prostitute, keeping her in the hold overnight. The next morning they realize what trouble they have got themselves into, and what they will have to do to extricate themselves from it.
Don’t miss this opportunity to watch this great film and others which are part of this program. Here is the link for Gemide (On Board) on MUBI website.
