Did you know that a Turkish remake of The Exorcist was made in 1974 that closely recreated the William Friedkin original albeit with the Catholicism replaced with Islam?
For many years the film Şeytan circulated only in poor-quality bootleg copies, but it has recently been digitally restored and this screening will be the first time the HD restoration has been screened with English subtitles.
The screening will be followed with a panel discussion on the topic of film remakes and cross-cultural exchange featuring film historian Iain Robert Smith, King’s College London, and Turkish gothic expert Tuğçe Bıçakçı Syed, Lancaster University.
