Formatted Abstract/Summary
With reference to the history of Turkish immigration, this chapter will consider the significance of transnational movements in films which focus on the Turkish diaspora in Germany, and will argue that the increased mobility of characters continues to demonstrate the limitations of a hybrid Turkish-German identity and existence, and cannot be viewed as positively as some have suggested. The chapter will also explore how borders are framed in recent Turkish-German cinema and the role they play in highlighting some of the struggles that second-generation Turks face today, four decades after Turkish foreign workers began arriving in Germany.
