Rauf / DIR: Barış Kaya and Soner Caner / Turkey / 2016 / 94 min / Language: Turkish with English subtitles


Rauf is the story of nine-year-old Rauf, who lives in a rural village under the shadow of an invisible endless, war. Rauf embarks on a journey to find the color pink for the girl he has fallen in love with – who happens to be the 20-year-old daughter of the carpenter he works for as an apprentice. For Rauf, pink is the color of the love of his dreams, of the courage to hope, of the peace he has never seen. The quest for pink begins with his wish to make her smile. But his experiences in a grey world will teach him lessons in black and white.
