Synopsis

Turkey in the 1960s and 1970s was one of the biggest producers of film in the world even though its film industry, Yeşilçam, didn't have enough written material to start with. In order to keep up with demand, screenwriters and directors copied scripts and remade movies from all over the world. Kaya met with the fastest working directors, the most practical cameramen and the most hardheaded actors to gain a closer insight into the country's tumultuous history of movie making. 

Cem KAYA

Cem Kaya is a documentary filmmaker from Berlin with a quirky interest in found footage work. He was educated in cultural studies and trained as an editor. His films combine tense and often humorous storytelling with extensive background knowledge of the issues he deals with.
