The character of “Driver Nebahat” played by Sezer Sezin, who started her film career in 1944, is embraced by audiences so thoroughly–and became a nickname for her for many years–that sequels were made in 1964 and 1965. Indeed, with its social references that surpass the film itself, “Driver Nebahat” has become a phrase in daily life and used to refer to women who “became mannish” in the working life. The film tells the story of Nebahat, who has to do a traditionally man’s job in order to exist in the public arena and gain her economic independence, and poses the question: should a woman “become mannish” in order to survive in a men’s world?

Driver Nebahat will be screened in commemoration of Sezer Sezin.
