New Turkish Cinema–Individual Tales of Common Concerns
For several years until the beginning of the 1990s, Turkish cinema seemed to be suffering from a paucity of ideas, or a synthesis of experiences in relation to life as it is lived. Following the impact made by Yilmaz Guney and courageous works by a number of talented filmmakers, such as Ali Özgenturk and Erden Kiral, the momentum was gradually lost, taking with it creativity and originality. Several rural films were made — mostly by urban directors--as if to cash in on a successful formula, and leftist ideology was used almost as if following a fashion, without sincerity or conviction.
