In 2015, a me­teor shower rained down on Turkey dur­ing es­ca­lat­ing vi­o­lence be­tween the state and Kur­dish sep­a­ratists. Di­rec­tor Gür­can Kel­tek takes this re­mark­able event as the in­spi­ra­tion for his sci-fi-drama, but sadly of­fers lit­tle con­text, in­stead favour­ing dis­jointed mono­chrome clips in­ter­cut with a pon­der­ous mono­logue. Al­most ex­po­si­tion-free, the re­sult proves alien­at­ing. Tim Cole­man
