The Turkish mountain snowdrop, “Befir” has a sad and beautiful lore.
It is fabled that it is in love with the sun – which it has never seen, knowing that it will begin to wilt and fade away the moment the first rays touch it.
And so it waits, to bloom and see the sun – only to die – loving it.
From I SAW THE SUN
A year ago in Winter, it is a brilliant masterpiece, at times subtle at times in your face. Boldly experimental and a portrait of true art in several forms. Great acting, singing, background score, lyrics, screenplay, dance, painting and most of all.. the story itself weaving itself through the complex fabric of modern life at the same time touching a deep uncharted basic chord.
