They called him 'The Ugly King' but who was Yılmaz Güney? Director Hüseyin Tabak sets out to answer this very question with The Legend of the Ugly King, which explores the legacy of Yılmaz Güney - political dissident and revolutionary Kurdish filmmaker - who achieved international acclaim with films like Yol (Palme d’Or, 1982) and Sürü (Golden leopard, 1978).
