The screening of Zuhal will include subtitles for the D/deaf and people experiencing hearing loss.

Nazlı Elif Durlu’s striking black comedy follows Zuhal, a successful lawyer in İstanbul, who begins to hear the sound of a cat meowing in her apartment complex. Trouble is, there’s no cat in sight. Embarking on a desperate quest to find the source of the sound that keeps her awake at night, Zuhal knocks on the doors of her neighbours whom she previously avoided. As the situation becomes more absurd, Zuhal’s search for the elusive cat will bring her the epiphany she never knew she needed.
