70S IN TURKEY, ROCK'N'RIOT
Revolution in music
At the turn of the 1970s, Turkey was going through a major crisis. Against the backdrop of the Cold War, a painful chapter of political instability began with repeated coups and a succession of governments.
These events gave rise to a revolutionary current carried by an anti-capitalist and feminist youth eager for freedom that defied a very conservative society and martial law.
This film tells this story through the prism of Anadolu pop, a music style born on the barricades that combined local sound with western rock on lyrics inspired by the Anatolian poetic heritage.
