LIEBE, D-MARK UND TOD

Germany 2022 – Director: Cem Kaya – Original language: German, Turkish – Subtitles: English, German

When the Turkish guest workers arrived in Germany, a diverse music culture developed, completely unnoticed outside of the Turkish community, with its own stars, record labels and hit songs that reflected the difficult arrival in Germany.
