In the early 1960s, the so-called “Gastarbeiter:innen” (guest workers) from Anatolia and other areas of Turkey were recruited by the Federal Republic of Germany. From the beginning, there was something that always accompanied them and was part of their culture: their music – a piece of home in a foreign land. Over the years, independent musical directions developed in Germany, which did not exist in this form in the mother country. This unprecedented story of an independent musical culture of immigrants from Turkey, their children and grandchildren in Germany, is told in the exciting cinema documentary “Aşk Mark ve Ölüm”.

The film title “Aşk, Mark ve Ölüm” is inspired by the poem of the same name by the author Aras Ören, which was set to music by the band IDEAL in 1982.
