To celebrate PRIDE month, we are bringing you a special preview screening of Levan Akin’s CROSSING on June 23rd. Audiences in select cinemas throughout Ireland can enjoy an exclusive first look of the award-winning feature ahead of its cinema release on July 19th.
Crossing is a moving, compassionate tale of identity, acceptance and unlikely connection that transcends borders and generations. Lia, a retired school teacher living in Georgia, hears from a young neighbour Achi that her long lost niece Tekla, a transgender woman, has crossed the border into Turkey. Hoping to bring Tekla home after a period of estrangement, Lia travels to Istanbul with the unpredictable Achi to find her. Exploring the hidden depths of the city, they cross paths with a transgender lawyer called Evrim, who helps them in their search. Humanistic and tender, Akin’s third feature is a heartfelt portrayal of overcoming the degrees of separation that divide us.
