Hüseyin Tabak: “7 Years is not Enough for Yılmaz Güney.”
The Legend of the Ugly King from the section “Cinemania” was screened at Atlas Sineması with the participation of the director Hüseyin Tabak and the film crew. The director commented on the film which took seven years to complete: “Seven years is not enough to for Yılmaz Güney. The editing took two years and we weren’t able to capture Yılmaz Güney’s personality during this process. The first edit was 6 hours long. We edited and edited forever… We just couldn’t capture this man. Because when you tell one aspect of him, you discover another one. I still meet new aspects to master Yılmaz. I’ve worked on this for seven years, but I don’t think I have it in me to fully capture him even in 70 years. Tabak said that the film will be released in September thanks to Nar Film, and added that they want to see it screened in other cities and festivals as well.
