Summary Examining filmmakers in the vanguard of the New Turkish Cinema movement, Lawrence Raw shows how their films reveal the effects of profound socio-economic change on ordinary people in contemporary Turkey. In analysis of and personal interviews with Derviş Zaim, Zeki Demirkubuz, Semih Kaplanoğlu, Çağan Irmak, Tolga Örnek, and Palme d'Or winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Raw draws connections with Turkish theatre, art, sculpture, literature, poetry, philosophy, and international cinema. A native of England and a twenty-five year resident of Turkey, Raw interleaves his film discussion with thoughtful commentary on nationalism, gender, personal identity, and cultural pluralism
