To My Mother And Father

9mins / HD / 2010 / UK& Turkey

Director Can Evrenol’s ominous work has asserted him as the king of uncomfortable viewing … it’s an absolute mindfuck, but one executed with the horror-full gusto...

Nine minutes of concentrated taboo-breaching ensue. Amateur FX are surmounted by sheer testicular fearlessness. Extreme and disturbing.
