Winter Sleep, a gripping indie film directed by Nuri Bilge Cevlan, is on at St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity this January. Winter Sleep tells the fascinating story of Aydin, a former actor who runs a hotel in Anatolia in Asian Turkey together with his wife Nihal and his recently-divorced sister Necla. During the winter season, the hotel not only acts as a shelter from the frosty cold, but also as an inescapable prison that further adds to the hostility between these three characters.

Winter Sleep is on a St James Cavalier on the 14th, 18th, 23rd and 31st of January 2015. For more information, please visit the St James Cavalier official website.
