Guy Martin - The Parallel State

  • Pattern 855 Wyandot Street Denver, CO, 80204 United States (map)

The Parallel State is a multi-layered project which began life as an examination of the Turkish soap opera and film industry, but evolved over the course of five years into a semi-fictional study of truth, reality and lies in contemporary Turkey. This blending of fact and fiction during a period that saw the rise of totalitarian rule in Turkey is deeply resonant to the experiences of contemporary American society.
