Seeking 'Asylum'


The 2001 documentary "Asylum on the Bosphorus" is about German exiles who immigrated to Turkey during the rise of Hitler in the 1930s. Turkish filmmaker Nedim Hazar explores the effects of this wave of immigration by telling the stories of two children of German exiles. Tonight at 7, the Harvard Film Archive hosts a screening of "Asylum", presented by the10th Boston Turkish Festival, with Hazar in attendance. The film will be followed at 9 by "Kushtepe Blues" and "Burhan Ocal & Trakya All Stars: A Musical Homecoming". The event is co-presented by the Goethe-Institut Boston and the Boston Jewish Film Festival.
