Levan Akin brings beauty to the back streets and back waters of the Bosphorus in Crossing, an elegy of travel and trans life which ebbs and flows between Georgia and Istanbul. Dream-like even as it cruises through a purposefully-shaped narrative, this fourth feature from Akin opens the Berlinale’s Panorama sidebar with a visual elegance and an eloquent vision of acceptance.
