special event: “Yol”

Posted by: Serena In: Events

The Turkish Film Festival continues with this week’s screening of “Yol”, a 1982 film about the 1980 Turkish coup d’état. And if that’s not enough to draw you in, according to Wikipedia “the screenplay was written by Yılmaz Güney, and it was directed by his assistant Şerif Gören, who strictly followed Güney’s instructions, as Güney was in prison at the time. Later, when Güney escaped from prison, he took the negatives of the film and edited it in Switzerland.” The film won several awards at the Cannes Film Festival, but was banned in Turkey until 2000.
