Selman Nacar
Feature Narrative, Courtroom Drama

A remarkable courtroom drama from Turkey, Canan is a criminal lawyer who divides her time between the court, where she is defending a murder suspect, and the hospital where her mother is. 

Morally complex and naturalistic, Hesitation Wound is an unexpected drama, powerfully acted with a bravura performance from Özen, and strong direction from writer / director Nacar. 

Already getting festival recognition – nominated for the Best Film Horizons Award at Venice last year – Hesitation Wound makes for compulsive viewing. 

 “…as a film, it’s a truly enticing and welcoming sub-90-minute treat.” – Leila Latif, Indiewire

Winner Best International Picture, Zurich Film Festival, 2023, winner Free Zone Film Festival, Human Rights Award (director) Selman Nacar, winner Festival Cinéma Méditerranéen de Bruxelles, Grand Prix, Selman Nacar, 2023.
