Ignoring her brother Emir's concerns, she goes to her uncle, a harsh man who won't reveal anything. Azra becomes close to a cafe owner that she meets by accident and tries to reach her relatives through him.

On the Milky Road (2016)

Serbian director Emir Kusturica of "Underground" fame is back, with Italian actress Monica Belluci starring in his highly-anticipated new film, an ambitious romance that takes place in the darkest days of the Balkans conflict. A milk distributor who lives in a remote village falls in love with a Serbian-Italian beauty, who is the prospective wife of the man's girlfriend's brother and was recently freed (or abducted) from a refugee center. But things don't go well and the couple must escape an apocalyptic landscape in order to survive. "On the Milky Road" is a classic Kusturica movie, mixing drama, comedy and magical realism.

The Last Family (2016)

Although Polish painter Zdzisław Beksiński, who lived in the late 20th century, is famous in his homeland, many people outside Poland have never heard of him. Director Matuszynski seeks to rectify this in his ambitious new film, in which he recreates some of the material of Beksiński, who obsessively recorded video and tapes of himself and his family. While dark and violent paintings on the walls hint at a complicated and troubled life, the artist is not shown on the job, but with his family — the loyal and tenacious wife Zofia, his mother and mother-in-law, who both live with them and their neurotic and problematic son. Matuszynski remains loyal to Beksiński's original material in his elaboration, rich with detail and set against the changing decor and fashions in Poland between 1975 and 2005.

Where: Aspendos Theater Hall

When: 12 p.m.
