Tuesday 31 January 7:00pm
Middle East Studies, in collaboration with the Brown Film Forum, present a screening of "Hacivat Karagoz Neden Olduruldu?" (Who Killed the Shadows). The film is about two immigrants who seek refuge in the city of Bursa during the 14th century. Entertainers Karagoz and Hacivat, who presented stand-up shows that humorously criticized authorities, both lived and died during this era, but the legend behind their deaths has been distorted over the years. The film will be shown in Turkish with English subtitles. The event begins at 7 p.m. in the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, Joukowsky Forum, 111 Thayer St.
