New Cinema in Turkey

Filmmakers and Identities between Urban and Rural Space:
The book presents a critical assessment of the last twenty years of the "New Turkish Auteur Cinema" by comparing the so-called "third generation", the directors born in the early '60s, to a fourth generation of directors, born in the '70s and '80s, who, in the great majority, made their debut in the last decade. As such, this study represents the most up-to-date English language book on Turkish cinema.

Female Silences, Turkey's Crises

Gender, Nation and Past in the New Cinema of Turkey:
In the mid-1990s Turkish cinema experienced a remarkable revival. However, what is particularly unusual about this revival is the emergence of a new representational form: silent, inaudible characters. Equally unusual is the fact that this new on-screen silence had a gender(ed/ing) aspect, since, for the most part, the mute(d) characters were female. This book focuses on these newly emergent silent female characters in the new cinema of Turkey, and explores the relationship between the 'new' female representational form, the 'new' cinema of Turkey, and the 'new' socio-political climate in Turkey after the September 12, 1980 military coup. It investigates two central questions: what are the functions, formations and operations of these silent female characters, and why did this female representational form emerge specifically in this timeframe? Bearing a cinematic function of instrumentality and exposing, one way or another, a close association between point of view and discursive authority in the films studied, the silent female representational form in the new cinema of Turkey is a cinematic symptom of the on-going struggle over the disrupted orders of gender, nation and national memory due to an increase in thus-far silenced or marginalized voices in Turkey.

Immaturity in each source of Contemporary Individualism

L'immaturité en chacun, source de l'individualisme contemporain:
Dans l'espoir de la reprise d'un progrès mental et moral collectif susceptible de ranimer le meilleur de nos valeurs démocratiques, par cet opuscule je voudrais appeler chaque individu à sa responsabilité personnelle. Conjointement, je voudrais réveiller notre sentiment fraternel d'appartenance sans frontière à la condition humaine. J'aimerais contribuer à poser un discours alternatif dynamique capable de s'opposer au discours populiste qui, aux dernières nouvelles, rencontre l'assentiment d'un pourcentage de plus en plus grand de Français. J'aimerais fédérer les volontés individuelles constructives, celles de tous ces gens qui veulent réparer les dégâts causés par nos irresponsabilités passées et actuelles, et qui veulent réorienter leurs actes et entreprises dans un sens constructif, juste et respectueux. Pour couper court au populisme qui parle à l'individualisme primaire, je voudrais mobiliser chacun en ses parties évoluées afin qu'il se sente personnellement responsable de l'immaturité mettant la démocratie en danger et qu'il œuvre ainsi du mieux qu'il peut au grandissement des mentalités.

Nuri Bilge Ceylan : Essays and Interviews

The Turkish writer-director Nuri Bilge Ceylan had his short film Cocoon selected for the 1995 Cannes Festival competition, the first Turkish short ever to achieve this distinction. Ceylan has been acclaimed at Cannes ever since: Distant won the Grand Prix in 2003, Climates the FIPRESCI prize, and Three Monkeys the Best Director award. In 2011 he won the Grand Prix again, for Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, and Ceylan's 2014 film Winter Sleep won the Palme d'Or at Cannes. Ceylan's low-budget, art-house cinema thrives on a tension between dedication to formal control and commitment to realistic authenticity. His films are drenched in a brooding, meditative atmosphere and anchored to a deeply intimate form of visual and aural poetry that undercuts the importance of narrative per se. In its own quiet, understated manner, Ceylan's cinema confronts the big thematic questions of all great art: what are we doing with our lives and why; how does the past influence both the present and future; how may we reconcile our desires and ideals with the disappointments of reality; how can our human relationships survive intact when people are forever being encouraged to search for something better than what they already have? Nuri Bilge Ceylan: Essays and Interviews is the first book wholly in English dedicated to this important artist's oeuvre. Included are eight interviews with Ceylan and ten essays about his films, together with a biographical introduction, full movie credits, and a bibliography. Robert Cardullo has published a number of books, among them André Bazin on French Cinema, World Directors in Dialogue, and Playing to the Camera. After taking his doctoral degree from Yale, Cardullo taught for four decades both inside and outside the United States. (Back cover)

Slow Movies : Countering the Cinema of Action

"In all film there is the desire to capture the motion of life, to refuse immobility" Agnes Varda has noted. But to capture the reality of human experience, cinema must fasten on stillness and inaction as much as motion. Slow Movies investigates movies by acclaimed international directors who in the past three decades have challenged mainstream cinema's reliance on motion and action. More than other realist art cinema, slow movies by Lisandro Alonso, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Pedro Costa, Jia Zhang-ke, Abbas Kiarostami, Cristian Mungiu, Alexander Sokurov, Bela Tarr, Gus Van Sant and others radically adhere to space-times in which emotion is repressed along with motion; editing and dialogue yield to stasis and contemplation; action surrenders to emptiness if not death.

"Uzak - Weit" : Ein Türkischer Film in Europa (A Turkish Film in Europe)

2002 setzt sich der türkische Filmemacher Nuri Bilge Ceylan mit dem innerländischen Demografiewandel, der Binnenmigration, auseinander und schafft damit ein cineastisches Meisterwerk, das in Europa mit zahlreichen Filmpreisen ausgezeichnet wird. Doch was genau macht diesen unscheinbaren Film so besonders und wieso wird er als europäisches Kino gefeiert, wo er doch ein scheinbar speziell türkisches Problem aufarbeitet? Die vorliegende Arbeit setzt den Film in einen gesellschaftspolitischen und filmhistorischen Zusammenhang, wobei das Hauptaugenmerk auf der Analyse und Interpretation der stilisierenden Merkmale liegt.

(In 2002, the Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan at their innerländischen demographics change, internal migration, apart, creating a cinematic masterpiece that is excellent in Europe with numerous film awards. But what exactly makes this unassuming film so special and why it is celebrated as a European cinema, where he still worked up a seemingly specifically Turkish problem? This work sets the film in a socio-political and film-historical context, where the emphasis is on the analysis and interpretation of the stylized features.)

International Westerns : Re-Locating the Frontier

The Western tradition, with its well-worn tropes, readily identifiable characters, iconic landscapes, and evocative soundtracks, is not limited to the United States. Western, or Western-inspired films have played a part in the output of numerous national film traditions, including Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and Latin America. In International Westerns: Re-Locating the Frontier, Cynthia J. Miller and A. Bowdoin Van Riper have assembled a collection of essays that explore the significance and meanings of these films, their roots in other media, and their reception in the national industries which gave them form. Among the questions that the volume seeks to answer are: What do Westerns not made in the U.S. reveal? In what ways do they challenge or support the idea of national literatures and cinemas? How do these films negotiate nation, narrative, and genre?

Cinema as Weather : Stylistic Screens and Atmospheric Change

How do cinematic portrayals of the weather reflect and affect our experience of the world? While weatherly predictability and surprise can impact our daily experience, the history of cinema attests to the stylistic and narrative significance of snow, rain, wind, sunshine, clouds, and skies. Through analysis of films, Kristi McKim calls our attention to the ways that we read our atmospheres both within and beyond the movies. Building upon meteorological definitions of weather's dynamism and volatility, this book shows how film weather can reveal character interiority, accelerate plot development, inspire stylistic innovation, comprise a momentary attraction, convey the passage of time, and idealize the world at its greatest meaning-making capacity. Using film theory, history, formalist/phenomenological analysis, and eco-criticism, this book casts cinema as weather, insofar as our skies and screens become readable through our interpretation of changing phenomena.

Film After Film  (Or, What Became of 21st Century Cinema?)

J. Hoberman turns an erudite eye to the study of twenty-first-century cinema and finds that, only a dozen years into the new millennium, the world of movies has already experienced a revolutionary transformation. This sea change in filmmaking spanned the 2000 American presidential election and the trauma of 9/11, events that reshaped world politics and left an indelible imprint on the emerging aesthetic of the new century's cinema. A rupture opened up in the evolution of film, presaging, as Susan Sontag forlornly predicted a few years earlier, the death of cinephilia, or at least cinephilia as we know it. Witty and allusive, in the style of classic film theorist/critics such as André Bazin and Siegfried Kracauer, Film After Film expands on a much-discussed era-defining Artforum article by Hoberman before moving on to a chronicle of the Bush years in cinema.

Yönetmen Sineması-Nuri Bilge Ceylan

"Türk sinemasında 1990'larda başlayan dönüşümle beraber ortaya çıkan yeni kuşak yönetmenlerden biri de Nuri Bilge Ceylan'dır. Asıl olarak fotoğraf sanatı birikiminden gelen Ceylan, özellikle siyah-beyaz fotoğraf estetiğini içselleştirerek geliştirmiş, sinemasında da bu estetiği oldukça fazla kullanmıştır. Görüntülerin bir kısmında fotografik değer sinemasal olana üstün dahi gelir. Bir estetik kaygının sonucudur bu; kimi zaman renklerle bile oynanır ve duygu dünyasının titreşimleri imgenin tabiatını da belirler. Tematik olarak ise, üçlemede (Kasaba, Mayıs Sıkıntısı, Uzak) mevcut izlenimci ve durumcu bakış, sonrasında bir müdahaleyle varoluşsal olanın bıçak sırtına dönüşür ve bir yerde bir muamma olan insan doğasının peşine düşer."

New Turkish Cinema : Belonging, Identity and Memory

Providing a sharp and engaging analysis of the films by internationally acclaimed new wave Turkish directors... 
Asuman Suner explores the emergence of the new wave Turkish cinema against the backdrop of the drastic transformation of Turkey since the 1990s. Suner argues that this new cinema, including both commercial and independent productions, persistently returns to the themes of belonging, identity and memory;  it is how films address these themes that constitutes a dividing line, with big budget popular films tending to settle contradictions into comforting resolutions, while independent movies demonstrate their paradoxical nature.  At the same time, she addresses the divergences between popular and "art" cinema that destabilize the very distinction between these categories.(From the back cover)

Exile Cinema : Filmmakers at Work Beyond Hollywood

Exile Cinema : Filmmakers at Work Beyond Hollywood
Outside the shrinking American film-culture market there is a vast movie-crazed world where madmen, geniuses, and apostates roam freely, subject to a relatively minimal degree of corporate industry and spin control. In Exile Cinema, prominent film critics profile the oeuvres of working, thriving international filmmakers. These filmmakers battle the greatest odds a modern artist can face: the opposition of mass culture at large and a medium that requires enormous expenditures in every stage of production and distribution. Naturally, the average American moviehead rarely gets a chance to see these marginalized directors' work and often knows about them only through dazzled rumors and rhapsodic hearsay. Whimsical and deeply subjective, the viewpoints and evangelisms in Exile Cinema will serve as salve for the cineaste's lonesome fury.

Hayalet Ev : Yeni Türk sinemasında Aidiyet, Kimlik ve Bellek

Yeni Türk filmlerinin bize "hayalet evleri" anlattığını söylüyor Asuman Suner. Terk ettiğimiz, kimi zaman zorla boşalttırılmış, içinde hayaletlerin dolaştığı, tekinsiz, ürkütücü evler bunlar. Ama aynı zaman da bir türlü tam olarak geride bırakamadığımız, özlem duyduğumuz, karşısında çocuklaştığımız, döndüğümüzde eskisi gibi bulamadığımız, sürekli "hayaletini kurduğumuz" evler... 
İncelemenin merkezinde Türk sinemasının son dönemdeki belli başlı yapıtları ve bu verimi borçlu olduğumuz önde gelen yönetmenler var. Yeni Türk sineması Türkiye'de "aidiyet" meselesi etrafındaki gerilimleri gözleyebileceğimiz verimli bir kültürel zemin sunuyor. Hem bu gerilimlere tanıklık ederek, kamusal alanda söze dökülemeyen endişe ve fantazileri gösteren kültürel bir alan açıyor hem de eleştirel bir müdahale platformu oluşturuyor. 
Kültürel inceleme konusu olarak ele aldığı bu yeni Türk sinemasının, artık "ulusal sinema" çerçeve içine sığmadığını düşünen Suner'in zihnimizi farklı görme biçimlerine kışkırtan, elimize yeni kuramsal araç gereçler veren kitabı yetkin bir akademik çalışma. Yazarın henüz görmemiş olduğunuz filmler hakkında bile olsa, kolaylıkla takip edebilmenizi sağlayan canlı betimlemeleri ve başarılı anlatımı sayesinde mümkün oluyor bu.

Nuri Bilge Ceylan sinemasını okumak

"Kitapta, Ceylan'ın Kasaba'dan, hatta ilk kısa filmi Koza'dan Uzak'a kadar olan ve öyküsel açıdan olduğu kadar, karakterlerinin devamlılık göstermesi gibi özellikleriyle birbirine eklemlenen filmleri, doğa/ kültür, yerleşik/ gezgin, tanıdık/yabancı gibi ikili karşıtlıklar yanında, taşra, taşralılık, ev, aidiyet gibi kavramlar ışığında inceleniyor. Ancak kitapta Ceylan'ın sineması, yalnızca öyküsel bir devamlılık göstermesi ve kavramsal bir açılım sağlamasıyla değil, aynı zamanda filmlerinin konularını yaşamdan alması ve kendi deneyimlediği yaşamı, sanatına, sinemasına konu etmesi, tam da sinemaya özgü olan yollarla anlatması yönüyle de ele alınıyor."
