The General

(HD, 22 min, Turkey/ USA, 2016)























A tragicomedy shot at different Turkish ideologically-loaded sites. The actress Scheherazade, like the Arabian Nights' storyteller, wears a generic Gaddafi-style jacket throughout, yet switches roles, while remaining always: 'The General'. Film theories, cinematographies and their histories are implemented. Within ideology itself, The General and the general population are binaries, yet within these subjectivities, parts of concepts can appeal or be 'true', or useful for the individual's transitory needs.
