Main Program

Night of Silence / Reis Celik

The groom is 6o years old, has spent many years in prison and so for him it seems a little late to be marrying. In fact, this wedding is being held to stop the blood feud between two big clans. The bride, whose face is hidden by a red veil, waits for the groom, keeping her fears well hidden. The noises fade as the door is closed. The bride and the groom are alone in the room now. The groom gives his presents to the bride, who is sitting down and whose legs are too short to reach the floor. He reveals her face. The face under the veil is the face of a 14-yearold girl. The groom is obliged to consummate the marriage with his wife under the pressure of centuries-old traditions. The bride tries to assuage her fears with her subtle wit. The night they spend together is like a chess game. What will the morning bring for the two newlyweds?
