Yarim (The Half) is the story of two halves setting out to become a whole, of the efforts made by two children to play the existing male-female roles. Fidan is a 15-year-old shepherd girl who lives in poverty with her family in a village in eastern Turkey. Her father gives her as a bride to an unknown family. Her husband, Salih, is mentally challenged; although he has a physical age of 35, his mental age is lower than Fidan’s. This screening is sponsored by the Turkish Students Association, Turkish Flagship Program, Center for the Student of the Middle East (CSME), Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region (CeLCAR), and IU Cinema. In Turkish with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
