The Turkish takes on STAR WARS, THE EXORCIST, THE WIZARD OF OZ, RAMBO, E.T., DRACULA, SUPERMAN and countless others. Shameless, charismatic knockoffs and often ridiculous, these films were nothing if not narratively adventurous — robots could appear in a kitchen-sink drama, zombies can show up in a Rambo film. There truly were no rules. Don’t think this is all curious fodder for laughs, though. In the ’60s, ‘70s and ‘80s, the Turkish film industry, christened “Yeşilçam”, was a force to be reckoned with. In fact, it was one of the most prolific production industries in the world.
REMIX, REMAKE, RIPOFF took seven years to make and it’s here to school you on an industry that was the very definition of special. This was an era when Turkey had zero copyright laws so everything — title, concept, musical score, even full-on footage from a pre-existing production, was fair game!
