Today’s Sikara SXSW film pick, Zayiat, involves the mystery of the orient and a boy looking for his father. A man falls into the Bosphorus on a snowy night. His son, Mete is dragged into a half-hearted pursuit through claustrophobic Istanbul. Faced with the depression of his mother, he discovers some not-so-conventional means to summon an absent father. The search takes Mete through sleepless nights in Istanbul as a smothering chronic cough slowly overwhelms him. In his debut film, Deniz Tortum walks confidently between various modes of cinematic styles. By blending dramatic seriousness with a campy feeling as well as creating abstract passages with uncanny digressions, the film ultimately manages to capture different cinematic moments tactfully.
