Commitment Hasan

  Semih Kaplanoğlu

  Turkey     147 minutes


When stubborn apple farmer Hasan learns that an energy company is planning to build a tower on the land he inherited from his father, effectively rendering it useless, he resolves to do whatever he can to put an end to the project—even at the expense of his friends and neighbors. Just when he feels he’s on solid ground, the unexpected approval for a long-awaited pilgrimage to Mecca shakes the earth beneath his feet, triggering a journey of soul-searching and self-reflection. The second entry in widely acclaimed Turkish auteur Semih Kaplanoğlu’s “Commitment” trilogy, Commitment Hasan is filled with gold-flecked landscape photography and impeccable performances. This moving, penetrating character study chronicles the lengths one man must go to atone for his past in search of forgiveness.
