"I will never be able to be a superhero." ( From the film)
An unexpected superhero story from last year's !f Inspired co-winner.
Ali Kemal is only five years old when someone from another world comes and gives him superpowers. But these powers are limited. He tries to help other people, wearing a costume and introducing himself as Gênco to hide his real identity. Meanwhile, he runs a vegetarian café with a friend, which is not doing well. And his limited superpowers make him a figure of ridicule from time to time. Ali Kemal ends up feeling depressed and retreats to his house. One day Salih, a man he had once helped, rings the bell and asks for help for his sister. Ali Kemal wants to help, but his powers simply aren't enough. Salih doesn't take no for an answer, and they begin to work on developing Ali Kemal's powers. Co-winner of the !f Inspired competition award last year, Ali Kemal Çınar shows again in this film, which he wrote, directed and acted in, why his is an utterly unique and original voice.
Ali Kemal Çınar was born in 1976, in Diyarbakır. He is one of the founders of Cinephiles Cinema Club in Diyarbakır. He completed his first feature Short Film in 2013 (!f 2014). His 2015 feature film Hidden shared the 2016 !f Inspired competition award and won the SİYAD award.
