Presented in Turkish with English subtitles
Young Wrestlers premiered at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival.
The 26 boys living at the sports academy in the Turkish province of Amasya will endure a lot to realize their wrestling dreams.
In Young Wrestlers (Genç Pehlivanlar) they face the usual challenges of adolescence in a male-dominated environment and contradictory contemporary Turkey.
The camera remains observational and discreet while still allowing us to experience their everyday life at close range – somewhere between camaraderie and competition.
