    • Synopsis
    • The 26 boys living at the sports academy in the Turkish province of Amasya will endure a lot to realize their wrestling dream. In Young Wrestlers (Genç Pehlivanlar) they face the usual challenges of adolescence in a male dominated environment and contradictory contemporary Turkey.

      The camera remains observational and discreet while still allowing us to experience their everyday life at close range – somewhere between camaraderie and competition.
