Born in Germany as the son of Turkish parents, the 30-year-old director is a child of globalization: like the musician Manu Chao, he samples and remixes elements from a diversity of cultures, material easily available to his generation for the first time. «We grew up with the video recorder – and my great role models were not from Europe. Neo-Realism or Film Noir, that didn’t come until later. In the beginning I was really keen on American cinema: love, violence, action, simply good stories! And making films enabled him to approach his own roots and arrive at the insight that tradition need not mean just raking in the ashes: «I was lucky, I had the opportunity to work in Turkey and to get to know the country in that way. We German-Turks are like aliens for those over there in Turkey. So we have to keep on going over there and examining our own history. We can learn a lot and then make it into something new.
