The book is a comprehensive overview, looking at the developments in the cinematic landscape of Turkey’s cinema from the 2000s onwards. My contribution relates to Turkey’s comedy films, where a chronological outline of the genre draws parallels with the socio-political context of Turkey and
how certain events have had an effect on particular narratives and characterizations. The chapter also discusses box office results in order to understand the type of stories that draw Turkish audiences to the cinema.
