Books: New Cinema of Turkey

Nowe Kino Turcji Ed. Jan Topolski

New Cinema of Turkey is an anthology of texts by Turkish, German, English and Polish film critics and experts illustrated with photos from films and directors’ photographs. Limited by themes and connected with works and artists presented at the 10th IFF Era New Horizons.

The book joins two perspectives, of Western authors who reveal Turkish cinematography to them and of Turkish authors who make an attempt to describe it anew. Articles touch upon social relationships (with particular attention to the figure of a woman, a child and a father/husband), transformations in religion and culture under the influence of industrialization and Westernization, the opposition of provinces and the metropolis, and the presence of history and politics. They show how new Turkish cinema interprets classic genres; they try to provide its stylistic specificity; they look for auteur poetics. The anthology discusses the work of such filmmakers as Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Zeki Demirkubuz, Derviş Zaim, Yeşim Ustaoğlu, Semih Kaplanoğlu, Reha Erdem, Umit Ünal and Kazim Öz.
