SCREENING: Human Landscapes – Portraits of Six Turkish Authors

Friday, March 08, 2013 7:00 p.m.

Award-winning filmmaker Osman Okkan has woven together portraits of six influential Turkish authors—Asli Erdogan, Nazim Hikmet, Yasar Kemal, Murathan Mungan, Orhan Pamuk, and Elif Safak—into a set of compelling short films entitled Human Landscapes: Portraits of Six Turkish Authors. Each film explores the work of one of the writers in the context of modern Turkey’s shifting political landscape, raising questions about literary and political developments, human rights, minority rights, religious freedom, and freedom of speech. A screening of Human Landscapes is followed by commentary and a panel discussion. Presented by the School of Media Studies.
