Fundraiser for Turkey & Syria: Burning Days & The Wild Pear Tree (2018).
To contribute to the relief effort for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria, the KINO cinema in Rotterdam is organizing two screening events this month to raise funds. All ticket revenues will go to organizations on the ground: a Queer relief fund and Mor Dayanisma.
On 23 February KINO will show a preview of the upcoming Turkish village noir thriller Burning Days, and on 28 February one of KINO's recent Cannes favourites returns to the cinema: Nuri Bilge Ceylan's The Wild Pear Tree (2018). Also on Tuesday, February 28, Eathouse will do a kitchen takeover and serve delicious warm dishes from 17:30 to raise more money.
