Mustafa Kara

Mustafa Kara, born in 1980, was graduated from the Department of Radio and Television of the Cumhuriyet University. His debut feature in 2006 was Hope Island, a co-production between Turkey and the United Kingdom. He founded in 2009 Karafilm Productions with Nermin Aytekin. Cold of Kalandar, his second feature film, is the fruit of years of work after many documentary and commercial films.

Mehmet lives with his wife, two sons and mother in a remote part of Northern Turkey with stunning scenery but short of almost everything needed to live. Mehmet is repeatedly urged by his wife to sell his breeding bull or get a job in the mines. But Mehmet has his own plan: he digs for metals on his own and is certain that he is close to discovering a valuable seam. He hammers away, deep in the rock, and come home every day empty-handed. Then Mehmet hears of bullfights in a nearby town and draws new hope: he starts training his bull. A poetic portrait of the archaic struggle for happiness against a fabulous natural backdrop.
