A prequel of sorts to Demirkubuz’s second feature, Innocence (1997), Destiny follows a geeky shopkeeper obsessed with a sexy bad girl who in turn is obsessed with her habitually criminal boyfriend.
When the boyfriend is imprisoned for killing two cops, the shopkeeper intensifies the pursuit of his obsession. Demirkubuz was the subject of a retrospective at the Wexner Center in January 2003. (107 mins., 35mm)
