Please Rewind. German-Turkish Film and Video Culture in Berlin

Please Rewind. German-Turkish Film and Video Culture in Berlin

Along with labor migration from Turkey, Turkish film culture has, over the years, established itself in West Berlin. Starting with screenings of Turkish films in Berlin cinemas, the video cassette conquered the market in the 1980s. Video nights became important family events; the video rental industry was booming. In addition to the import of videos from Turkey, videos which examined experiences of migration and ques- tions of identity were also produced in Germany. This publication is dedicated to the re-discovery of the German-Turkish film and video culture which continues to shape the post-migrant society to this day.

Bitte zur├╝ckspulen. Deutsch-t├╝rkische Film- und Videokultur in Berlin

Mit der Arbeitsmigration aus der T├╝rkei etablierte sich ├╝ber die Jahre auch die t├╝rkische Filmkultur in Westberlin. Angefangen mit Vorf├╝hrungen t├╝rkischer Filme in Berliner Kinos, eroberte in den 1980er Jahren die Videokassette den Markt. Videoabende wurden zu wichtigen Familienevents, das Video-Verleih- gesch├Ąft boomte. Neben dem Import von Filmen aus der T├╝rkei wurden auch in Deutschland Videos produziert, in denen Migrationserfahrungen und Identit├Ątsfragen thematisiert wurden. Diese Publikation widmet sich der Wiederentdeckung dieser deutsch-t├╝rkischen Film- und Videokultur, welche die postmigrantische Gesellschaft bis heute pr├Ągt.

Bitter Things

Bitter Things

Labor migration is worldwide creating new models of the transnational family, which despite geographical distances strives to maintain contact between the separated family members. But, how is the relationship between parents and children to be redefined whenever gifts and material support take the place of shared experience? When physical closeness has to take second place to communication programs like Skype and WhatsApp? How does this changing family landscape impact children and their parents? Bitter Things retraces positions on this topic from the 1960s right up to present day perspectives.
