Fried Chicken

Director: Serdar YILMAZ.
In a family made up of a grandmother, daughter and a 9-year old granddaughter, granddaughter is forced to eat. The moral supporter of this little girl who feels contented about her games and within her own world, is a man behind the curtain only visible to her and no one has any clue whether this man is real or imaginary. While the Fried Chicken is a monstrous and aversive thing for the little girl, it turns in to a four - meter -long avant-garde object that is pulled over by the (same) man behind the curtain under cheers in an isolated corner (street) populated by the homeless.

The subject is very suitable for a comedy, but Demetriou chooses a completely different approach, creting a serious film, which in today’s multicultural situation in Europe poses a very important question: Who we are – t...
