Last spring’s answer to "they don't make 'em like that anymore" was "Conquest 1453," the new spear-and-molten-pitch swashbuckler movie that had Turkish viewers storming their local cinemas in record-breaking numbers. It tells the story of the Ottomans' successful siege of Constantinople through the eyes of Sultan Mehmet II, with a neat subplot about a cross-dressing female cannon maker who made victory possible.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Middle Eastern Studies and Austin-Antalya Sister Cities Committee.

All films are free and open to the public, in Turkish with English subtitles.
