Her academic field of study involves Turkish cinema, cinema-history and memory relationship, documentary film and film language. We talk about her book "Turk Sinemasinda Tarih ve Bellek" ("History and Memory in Turkish Cinema") and her current research project titled "COVID-19 Pandemic and Crises of Turkish Film Industry".
