Law of the Border [Hudutlarin Kanunu] (Akad)

Law of the Border

Hudutlarin Kanunu | Lütfi Akad

A shepherd agrees to smuggle sheep across the border to pay for the care required by his sick son... A watershed moment for realism in Turkish cinema, which had previously focused on light entertainment. It was a life-changing experience for the film’s lead actor and co-writer, Yilmaz Guney, who, inspired by Akad, the director, began his prestigious directorial career that same year. One of the great rural dramas of its time, it left behind an enduring legacy in its country of origin.
