A beautifully composed and magical documentary, DISTANT CONSTELLATION introduces us to the colorful residents of a Turkish retirement home, a community made up of pranksters, historians, artists and would-be Casanovas. An Independent Spirit Award nominee, Mizrahi’s playful, dreamy film is one of the most unforgettable cinematic experiences of the year.
“A beautiful portrait. Soulful, humorous, visually delicate. One of the more exciting achievements in nonfiction cinema in recent memory.”
