In this delightful tale of desire and dogged determination, the rare arrival of an ice-cream man in his small village spurs eleven-year-old Rojhat into action: dodging his angry mother at every turn, Rojhat is set on securing the coveted sweet treat no matter what.
He was born in 1984 in Varto, Turkey. He moved to Istanbul to study at the Faculty of Phar-macology at Istanbul University. After his graduation, he made his first short film. He was then accepted to the master’s program for Directors of Film & Drama at Kadir Has University in Istanbul. His short films have won more than 50 awards and screened in major film festivals including Toronto, Locarno, Thessaloniki, Montpellier, Sarajevo and Istanbul. His first feature film project “Passed by Censor” has been selected for Cannes Cinefondation Residence 2015 and Berlinale Talent Project Market 2015.
