Crash ~ A Turkish Short

We are pleased to share with our followers, this award-winning Turkish short film Crash/ Carpisma by director, screenwriter and producer, Umut Aral (not to be confused with the 2019 series Carpisma starring Kivanc Tatlitug). Made in 2005, it is his second short film and won 13 prestigious national and international awards. Crash was screened in esteemed film festivals like Locarno International Film Festival, Raindance Film Festival, Asiana Short Film Festival, and International Short Film Festival in Drama.

Filmed with an old cinematic charm reminiscent of Hollywood classics, Crash is a delightful, complete story. It is the tale of three men from different corners of the crime world: A hired gun, Musta (Gurkan Uygun); a con man, Cem (Ali Cekirdekci); and a thief, Ali (Ruhi Sari). By a twist of fate, their paths cross at Central Station and they start to work as a team. But the past has a way of catching up. How far can they go?

Sit back and enjoy!
