Pehlivan means “wrestler”. This is a short film about a wrestling competition. We see a lot of people in the crowd both men and women alike appreciating, applauding and cheering wrestlers who have come from all parts of Turkey. A lot of honor is at stake as no body wants to lose.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
