In the presence of Jamil Dehlavi

Saturday 23, 16:00, Paderewski

In Turkey, at the crossroads of East and West, two English citizens, a musician in search of the mysterious Master Flautist who may have caused the death of his father, and an astronomer intrigued by the awakening of a volcano after a bout of unusual solar activity, get lost in a world of djinns and shaytans toying with human beings...
More than a horror film exploiting Islamic mysticism, Born of Fire is a sensory journey where words give way to music, where the beauty of the images replace the script, and into which one should immerse without restraint.
