Üç Bölümlü Kısa Film
One of the few Turkish films in the archive of the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen is Özcan Arca's Üç Bölümlü Kısa Film (Short Film In Three Parts) from 1979, which is not only a rarity as an archive item, but also a highly original example of the political cinema of its time. In three stylistically very different parts, it deals with various forms of escapism in a society that has become blind to the violence that is eroding it from within. Made shortly before the 1980 military coup, Üç Bölümlü Kısa Film was bound to appear to contemporary audiences as a courageous plea for civil disobedience. In a recently recorded conversation with Can Sungu, Özcan Arca talks about what motivated him to make the film at the time, how it came to Oberhausen, and also about his other interests: Zen Buddhism, surrealism and winemaking.
