Game, Interrupted (2023) is a fiction by Ilayda Iseri, selected in the “Competition Prix SAUVAGE CORTO” section of the 19th edition of the Paris European Film Festival, Europe by Europe.

Synopsis :

In 1979, during their winter break, two siblings aged 7 and 8 find their way out of boredom by switching from one game to another in a small apartment in Ankara. Their father passed away a few years ago, their mother is at work all day and their grandmother is sleeping on the couch as usual. However, something goes wrong that day. While trying to figure out what happened, they notice a strange intruder at the door. They must fix the course of events before their mother returns home.



“My goal is to create a contrast between futuristic and realistic sci-fi scenes of an Ankara house in 1979 in a documentary style. I intended to depict the strange socio-political atmosphere in the country before the 1980 coup in the most candid way through the eyes of children.”
Ilayda Iseri (Filmfreeway).
