Movie Synopsis:

Director Yilmaz Güney produced his most well-known film, YOL, which was honored with the Golden Palm in Cannes in 1982, from his Turkish prison cell, shortly before he broke free and fled to France. His work became a forerunner of Kurdish cinema. On his cinematic research trips, Hüseyin Tabak gathered multifaceted material on the politically polarizing director extraordinaire: from archive images, film clips, and interview sequences, he pursues the question: who was Yilmaz Güney? Who was this infamous Ugly King.
