On Friday, March 15 at 7pm, the Fullerton Museum Center will be screening “Law of the Border”– an action-packed Turkish Western that sparked a revolution in Turkish cinema. The film explores the complexity of life along the TurkishSyrian border, still relevant to today’s headlines in its debate over the meaning of national boundaries. Written by a real life Kurdish outlaw and cultural hero (whose scripts were smuggled from prison), this rare gem barely escaped government suppression to emerge as a land mark of essential viewing for any fan of cinema.
This is part of the Fullerton Museum Center’s monthly film series featuring independent, thought-provoking films with an introduction by local filmmaker Steve Elkins. Each film screening is followed by an informal discussion over drinks. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. $8 for Museum Members. $10 General Admission.
The Fullerton Museum Center is located at 301 N Pomona Ave, Fullerton, CA. Call (714) 738-6545 for more information.
