Director: FAYSAL SOYSAL
Hayati is a small-town literature teacher and a one hit wonder author who tries helplessly to hold on to his past: his shattering marriage, his sick old mother, a decaying walnut tree and the memory of his father. Instead of moving on with his life and taking control, he passively accepts its blows and is only interested in digging into the past, until his discovery forces him to confront his own weakness and answer the question: is standing idle while witnessing evil being done is just as much of a sin as doing it?
Faysal Soysal was born in 1979 in Batman. In 2008, with a scholarship, he attended to the New York Film Academy. He has been selected for Talent Campus of Sarajevo Film Festival at 2009. He did his first feature film «Crossroads» in 2013 and it got 13 awards from film festivals. He did documentary series for Al Jazire and TRT TV. He used to be voluntary of Doctors Worldwide and produced Africa documentaries about their aid. He published books on poetry and cinema. He is the director of International Amity Short Film Festival since two years. «Silenced Tree» is his second feature film.
