Black Car, the detective film by Aram Gülyüz, the highly prolific director and master at “inventing idioms”, follows charismatic police officer Kenan (Ayhan Işık) who leaves the police department following his wife’s death and now works as a teacher. Kenan is called back to the department for an “urgent” task and assigned to a case about unsolved women’s murders. Aram Gülyüz, who prolifically made popular films of a variety of genres within the Yeşilcam system, utilises established detective clichés with a striking wit. Starring Ayhan Işık and Ajda Pekkan, Black Car still relevant soundtrack is scored by the Vasfi Uçaroğlu Orchestra.

This film will be screened in honor of Aram Gülyüz, who is the recipient of this year’s Honorary Award.
