Description

In the days before DVD nd satelite television, London’s Turkish speaking population relied on the cinema, both as a place to meet , and as a link with the familiar culture of home. The memories of going to the cinema, recounted in this collection of interviews, provide the backdrop to the journeys of eight individuals from Cyprus and Turkey to London, where the photographic portraits by Barbara and Zafer Baran find them. The context for these stories is set by film maker Umit Unal, whose introductory essay provides a personal commentary on developments in the Turkish film industry, from its beginning to its current international status.
