Description:

“Ruhi Su ve Rahmi Saltuk türküleri eşliğinde yoksulluk ve emek sömürüsünü ve mücadeleyi, direnişi farklı, ilginç bir kurgu ile anlatmış. 13 dakikalık 1969 yılı koşullarını düşünerek izlemek gerekiyor.” Sinematek.tv: http://sinematek.tv/kordugum-1969-2/ (15 Oct 2019).

“Accompanied by Ruhi Su and Rahmi Saltuk’s folk songs, the film tells the story of poverty, struggle, and resistance in a different way, with an interesting montage. This 13-minute-long film requires audiences to acknowledge the contexts of the year 1969 in viewing.” Sinematek.tv: http://sinematek.tv/kordugum-1969-2/ (15 Oct 2019).

Viewing Notes:

Özer’s film benefits from many locally-known Turkish folk songs by the socialist singer and saz virtuoso Ruhi Su: Kadınlarımız [Women], Süvarinin Türküsü [Cavalry’s Song], Sarıkamış, and Büyük Taarruz [The Great Offensive]. The film uses the Crazy World of Arthur Brown’s Fire (1968) as well.
