Kubilay Sarikaya

In their debut feature, the Berlin-based filmmaking duo collaborate both off-screen and on as co-writers, directors, producers, and stars. After teaming up to produce music videos, they founded Lynarwood. Inspired to capture life in their Spandau-Neustadt hood, “Familiye” was born.

Danyal has accepted money to go to jail for someone else. As soon as he’s released, he finds out that it was all for naught: his little brother has gambled it all away and is now in even bigger debt. After their parents died, Danyal accepted the responsibility for his younger brothers – but since Miko has a gambling addiction and Muhammed Down syndrome, he has his work cut out for him. When Miko’s debt comes due and the authorities want to put Muhammed into assisted care, their fragile balance of their existence is threatened. Kubilay Sarikaya and Sedat Kirtan »Familiye« isn’t so much a gangster movie as a perceptive, sympathetic, finally tragic story about how it is to grow up in a gangster environment. Their ‘hood’ are the suburbs of Spandau, the small casinos and betting parlors on seedy Lynarstraße. Like their characters, they grew up here, developing and filming their story where they got their start in society. The configuration of their characters, their authentic locations and the adrenaline-soaked storytelling do not accidentally remind one of Scorsese’s “Mean Streats”. Their first film – one about love, violence and family – rocks the German independent scene with abando.
