For years, Turkey was one of the most prolific film producers in the world, yet little of that work was seen in America. Today, filmmakers such as Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Zeki Demirkubuz, Yesim Ustaoğlu and Raşit Çelikezer are finding new international audiences for Turkish cinema as well as offering powerful—and at times unsettling—visions of a country in transition. Join film scholars Fatih Özgüven and Zeynep Dadak and directors Raşit Çelikezer, Ali Ozgenturk, and Yesim Ustaoglu for this provocative panel discussion on the past, present and future of Turkish cinema.
