Join us on Star Wars Day 2018, at Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, for the world premiere of a brand-new 2K digital scan of Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam (1982) – best known as Turkish Star Wars! Numbers are limited – the event is free-but-ticketed and first come, first served. Grab ’em while you can from CCA, here.
Notorious for the ways in which director Çetin İnanç edited footage from Star Wars into his own film, along with music from Raiders of the Lost Ark and Flash Gordon, Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam is the holy grail of remakesploitation cinema.
For many years, the film circulated only in low-resolution bootleg copies, but in 2016 film historian Ed Glaser (Deja View) discovered a 35mm print of the film. Now a digital scan has been made so that the world can finally see the film the way it was intended – and with all-new English subtitles!
