"THE WILD PEAR TREE" by Nuri Bilge Ceylan will be the closing film of the main 23rd Sofia Film Fest's programme

Nury Bilge Ceylan's eighth full-length film - "The Wild Pear Tree", co-production between Turkey, France, Germany, Bulgaria (RFF International), Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Sweden, had its premiere in the main competition of Cannes 2018 and it was warmly accepted from audiences and critics. The international press was unanimous with the excitement from this "mesmerizing verbal fugue", created by "astonishingly complex spoken recitatives that weave philosophy, religious tradition, and ethics together".
