As the Academy Awards draw near, Istanbul Modern Cinema offers a reminder of the candidates for “Best Foreign Language Film”. “The Foreigners of the Oscars” presents a selection of films that were cited to compete in the Oscar race whose nominees are soon to be announced.
The program represents a category that brings together films from diverse cultures and languages which were big hits in world festivals and are outside the Hollywood track despite being nominated for the Oscar.
Among films featured in the program are: Lamb, which premiered at Cannes this year and is the first Ethiopian film to be included in the official selection for the Academy Awards; Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s feature film Mustang, selected as the French entry; the art-house horror film Goodnight Mommy (Ich seh, Ich seh), the Austrian entry which had its premiere in Venice in 2015; and The High Sun (Zvizdan), the winner of the Jury Prize in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section this year, a Balkan drama told through three different love stories set in three different decades played by the same actors.
