For every generation of film historians, there are new discourses and methods of film historiography regarding Turkish cinema. The methods, periodisation, and discursive practices of Turkish film historiography have evolved since the publication of Nijat Özön’s Türk Sinema Tarihi (History of Turkish Cinema) that first came out in 1962. Since then the periodisation indexed to political events, attention to auteur-style directors, and the differentiation of film genres can all be traced back to Özön. In time, new writers of film history emerged who preferred to use archival material to go back to the roots of film screenings in Turkey.
