Film Screening & Discussion
Clair Obscur ("Tereddüt") (Dir. Yeşim Ustaoğlu, 2016)
Clair Obscur is the psychological dance of two women who are deprived of and distanced from their natural right to mature and discover themselves, to love and be loved, and to sustain a real relationship of their choosing. The social cost of these psychological wounds reverberates from micro to macro levels throughout society, rotting it from within.
