“The Film Society together with the Moon and Stars Project of The American Turkish Society will present a 29-film survey of Turkish cinema, the largest such program ever mounted in the U.S. Just like the nation itself, Turkish cinema has always stood between traditions: richly informed about currents in European and American filmmaking while imbibing influences from Egyptian, Indian and—more recently—Iranian cinema, creating a fascinating mixture of styles and approaches. The 1960s saw the emergence of powerful, socially engaged filmmakers, perhaps best represented by Yılmaz Güney (a special focus of this series), as well as a highly commercial, extremely popular cinema, known as Yeşilçam, to which a new generation of Turkish film scholars has begun to turn its attention. In recent years, popular Turkish cinema has largely migrated to television, while a strong current of more personal auteurs—Fatih Akın, Zeki Demirkubuz, Yeşim Ustaoǧlu, and especially Nuri Bilge Ceylan—have been widely screened in international film festivals and art cinemas. There’s much to discover in Turkish cinema; it is our hope that this selection will whet your appetites for much more to come. Series programmed by Richard Peña.”
