13th Green Mountain Film Festival: <i>Bliss</i> Montpelier Vermont

When 17-year-old Meryem is found disheveled and unconscious in the Turkish countryside, her family believes the worst - that her chastity has been lost. They turn to the ancient principle of "tore," a strict moral code that condemns Meryem to death. When she refuses to take her own life, the duty of upholding the family's honor is given to a distant cousin, Cemal, who has just completed a brutal tour in the military. Cemal reluctantly agrees to take Meryem away - and kill her. Based on the internationally acclaimed novel and set against the backdrop of Turkey's natural wonders, BLISS is an unconventional road movie that pits tradition against modernity, urban against rural and East against West, all the while refusing to settle for easy answers. Stephen Holden, The New York Times: "This consistently gripping, visually intoxicating film stands as a landmark of contemporary Turkish cinema." 105 minutes, in Turkish with subtitles.
