What is YESILCAM?
Yesilcam (Green Pine) was called in Turkey in the 1960s a place similar to Hollywood in the USA or Bollywood in India. Large film productions and blockbuster movies were made and watched by millions in Turkey, Eastern Europe and Asia.
With government support, between the 1950s and the 1980s, a local film industry developed around Yesilcam Street in Istanbul’s Beyoglu district. With a rapid increase in filmmakers and actors, cinema ceased to be an elitist activity and became popular throughout the country.
In his book Istanbul, Orhan Pamuk (Nobel laureate) recalls that era with nostalgia and recounts how common it was to see actors and actresses of the time walking the streets of Beyoglu on a daily basis, going to their film sets.
Between 200 and 300 films were produced every year and the country was ranked 4th in the world in the industry, after the USA, UK and India.
The novel will recreate that era, the golden age of cinema in Turkey.
From the sets to the costumes, hairstyle and make-up of the actors, it was planned according to the era, taking into account every last detail.
This cultural and entertainment venue was closed due to the coup d’état in Turkey in 1980.
Yesilcam was the cradle of the great industry that today produces so many series and novels that fascinate all over the world.
