Gulyabani Gürcan Keltek

Film index A to Z

A year after making the superb Meteorlar, Turkish filmmaker Gürcan Keltek resumes his highly original work, with elements of documentary, experimental film, anthropology, politics and metaphysics. Starting from the diary of a woman with clairvoyant powers, suffering under the violent yoke of the Turkish state of the 1970s and 80s, Gulyabani gradually breaks free of all spatial and temporal limits to superimpose eras – and audiovisual fireworks – in an intense, ghostly whirlwind that morphs into the repressed nightmare of post-revolutionary Turkey. Embodying all injustices, the tragic and tormented Gulyabani seems to take possession of the film itself, to make sure that we can never again forget.
