2. I found this and almost fainted: Best Supporting Actress Award, Kiev, Ukraine. Wow. It is the place where I live and first I thought I had missed Mira here. Scary, ha? But she wasn't coming. "Turneja" ("The Tour") received the first prize at Kiev International Film Festival, though our papers don't give any details about supporting roles etc.
3. A new project Do Not Forget Me Istanbul (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1883168) is ready and coming to the theatres September 1st.
"Do not forget me Istanbul" is a joint effort by six directors, mainly from the Balkans and the Middle East, who want to remind people that Istanbul is a city whose memories go beyond Turkey's borders and whose history belongs to the people of those countries as well.
Mira's part: "Dragan and Ana take a long, tiring bus trip every weekend to sell cheap gadgets they carry in old suitcases in the urban jungle called Aksaray. One weekend they lose each other in the crowded streets, and while desperately looking for her husband, Ana encounters someone she lost many years ago: her son Marko who died in the war that tore the Balkans apart in the 1990s. Could that really be him?"
About the film: here and here.
Long-lasting project from 2007, "Apology" is also promised to be ready and comes with a title "Surviving Me" this year.
