A bawdy comic fable set in the Ottoman Empire during the mid-14th century based on two legendary figures in Turkish folkore, the jester Hacivat and the nomad Karagöz, men who apparently lived and died by their sense of humour.
Fusing elements of folk culture with contemporary flair, Ezel Akay unfurls a cinematic spectacle that is a riot of theatricality, daring anachronism, and audacious visual opulence. Revitalizing the shadow play tradition, Killing the Shadows provides a unique window into Turkey’s social dynamics.
