Kilink İstanbul’da

Somehow in September of 2009 I found myself sitting in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin after hours as part of the museum’s Nights of Ramadan celebration. In a folding chair in one of the exhibits, I and a group of other attendees watched the black and white film Kilink İstanbul’da (from 1967) as it was projected on a wall. It felt unusual and special. What’s more, the score to the film was performed live by Alexander Hacke (Einstürzende Neubauten, Crime and the City Solution), Khan of Finland & N.U. Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten). The film’s a little bit silly, a little bit hokey but definitely entertaining.
