“Don’t get mad at him, no matter what he says.” Netflix has revealed an official trailer for a Turkish film titled The Festival of Troubadours, from director Özcan Alper. It’s streaming on Netflix in September, including in the US for anyone interested in it. The Festival of Troubadours tells the story of a wandering musician who stops by to see his son after 25 years after visiting the grave of his wife. He is one his way to a music festival but when his son learns about his declining health, he accompanies his father. Thus begins a journey that could resolve their past issues. But as he expresses his frustrations and the meaning of being a Father is understood, will the two find peace with themselves before it is too late?
