MUBI's take

Balancing the personal with the political, Yeşim Ustaoğlu tells the heartbreaking story of a friendship that flourished in the slums of Istanbul. A precisely observed study of everyday systemic racism in Turkey, Journey to the Sun is a powerful affirmation of the empathetic potential of cinema.
