Overview

Over the past twenty-five years Turkish-German films have emerged and achieved prominence among German cinema. Tevfik Baser's 1986 film 40 Quadratmeter Deutschland paved the way and inspired many of today's successful and diverse Turkish-German directors. Recent research on Turkish-German cinema has been primarily concentrated on the representation of Turkish and bi-national identity issues in German society.

The analysis will be focused on films by Fatih Akin and Thomas Arslan, who have had a significant impact in Turkish-German cinema.
