Political room in film

Screening & talk with Asli Özarslan




What does it mean to create a political room in a film without a political topic? Film is visual art and each film has its own rules regarding visuality, dramatic and editing.

Jean-Luc Godard said: Do not make political films, but films politically. What do you show and what not in the frame of a picture?

We will watch some scenes from Yol, a 1982 film by Kurdish director Yilmaz Güney, and talk about its construction and effects on the viewer.
