Hatred (Boghz) - 2012

A young woman fleeing Iran through Turkey to the West will do whatever it takes to get there. One evening she meets a young man, third generation Turkish-Iranian, outside an Istanbul club. A relationship develops between them and she convinces him to leave Turkey with her. Initially they approach a relative of the young man, owner of a carpet shop, but between drugs and temperament things seriously misfire. So together they try to hustle for the necessary money for fake passports and visas. But in the carpet bazaar of Istanbul they are out of their depth. This striking feature debut, shot in Istanbul, premieres in Montreal in 2012.
