Die Legende vom hässlichen König

The Legend of the Ugly King

Hüseyin Tabak
Up-and-coming director Hüseyin Tabak sets out on a journey to research Yilmaz Güney’s life, meeting the important people who share their personal memories about the legendary filmmaker. He follows his way freely, like a journey through time, back to the future with the explosiveness of political filmmaking in our time behind him, where people are arrested, just as Yilmaz Güney was thirty years ago, for themes he dealt with, which are still so important today.
