The 16th Annual Turkish Film Festival: Private Cemetery

Private Cemetery (Mezarcı) directed by Talip Karamahmutoğlu (2017, 110 min.)
Ejder found his calling as a gravedigger after migrating to Germany. Years later, returning to his hometown Dalyan after the death of his father, and struck by the new million-dollar homes of the foreigners in his village, he has an idea. Rather than burying these rich people in the ordinary village cemetery, Ejder promises each of them infinite life after death, buried under olive trees (which symbolize immortality).
