ANKARA (AA) - Turkey's 2020 Oscar Awards candidate, Commitment - Asli, is set to make its debut in Turkey on Sept. 20.
Asli, a female name in Turkish, is the first movie of director Semih Kaplanoglu's Baglilik (Commitment) trilogy.
It has been selected as the nominee for 92nd Academy Awards in the category of the Best Foreign Language Film which will be held on Feb. 9, 2020.
Featuring Kubra Kip, Ece Yuksel, Umur Kurt, Almina Kavci, Merve Seyma Zengin, Jale Arikan and Osman Alkas, the movie's cinematography was undertaken by Andreas Sinanos and musical director was Anjelika Akbar.
The movie focuses on modern parent-child relationships and the dilemmas faced by Asli about being a mother and a woman.
After leaving her job for a while to look after her baby, Asli starts searching for a babysitter to be able to return to her job. Meeting Gulnihal -- also a mother -- triggers Asli's confrontation with her own deepest secrets.
"I have always thought of telling the story of modernism, which distances family members from their roles as mother, father, child and grandfather and the confusion this causes, as my responsibility to my country," Kaplanoglu told Anadolu Agency.
