Bitmeyen Yol [The Unending Road] (1965)
Director: Duygu Sağıroğlu
93 minutes
Turkish; without subtitles

A social realist film, Bitmeyen Yol [The Unending Road] (1965) portrays 1960s Turkey; a time when internal migration and unemployment showed an intensive increase. Following individual stories of a group of people who immigrated to Istanbul due to poverty, the film was objected by the Censorship Board on the basis that it showed all employers as evil.

Organized in parallel to the exhibition One and the Many, the screening is free. Reservations are not accepted.
