In the last five years of the twentieth century, films by the second and third generation of the so-called German guest workers exploded onto the German film landscape. Self-confident, articulate, and dynamic, these films situate themselves in the global exchange of cinematic images, citing and rewriting American gangster narratives, Kung Fu action films, and paralleling other emergent European minority cinemas. This, the first book-length study on the topic, will function as an introduction to this emergent and growing cinema and offer a survey of important films and directors of the last two decades. In addition, it intervenes in the theoretical debates about Turkish German culture by engaging with different methodological approaches that originate in film studies. Sabine Hake is the Texas Chair of German Literature and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin. Barbara Mennel is Associate Professor of German Studies and Film and Media Studies at the University of Florida, Gainesville.

Recensioner i media

"This volume presents an impressive array of essays ... which will be essential reading in German and European culture programs, cinema studies, and minority/diasporic culture studies. The collection emphasizes not only the variety of cultural products here summarized under "Turkish German cinema," ... but also methodological diversity." * Katrin Sieg, Georgetown University "I believe [this volume] is going to be a genuine contribution to a very lively yet underresearched area of film studies. [It] will serve as a rich model for scholarly study in film departments, as well as appealing to a wide range of readers, particularly inter- and multi- disciplinary minded scholars." * Nezih Erdogan, Izmir University of Economics
