About Dry Grases

From the acclaimed director of Winter Sleep and Once Upon a time in anatolia

Nestled away in wintry East Anatolia, public-school art teacher Samet yearns to leave the sleepy village for cosmopolitan Istanbul. Further disenchanted when he and Kenan, a colleague, come under public scrutiny, Samet fears circumstances will keep him in Anatolia and his dreams of a new life permanently out of reach. A silver lining is a budding relationship with Nuray, a fellow teacher and firebrand who develops connections with both Samet and Kenan, forcing Samet to confront what he can't readily accept. Renowned for his nuanced, visually ravishing imagery, award-winning director Nuri Bilge Ceylan capstones the film with one of his greatest sequences, a dazzling metacinematic climax featuring an entrancing performance from Dizdar, who took home Best Actress at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
