Meet the Filmmakers: THE PURIFIED

Interview with director Yiğit Erkol

Meet the Filmmakers: THE PURIFIED

Director Yiğit Erkol


What would be the teaser text for your film THE PURIFIED?

Sometimes a piece of melody can be the reason to rebel.

Where does the inspiration for your film come from?

I have always liked dystopic movies and books and wanted to shoot something dystopic. Also I see music as a salvation, which made me want to write a story about that.

What is your favourite film - officially and secretly?

This is a really hard question for me. I can tell you some movies that I like: I really like BUTTERFLIES by Tolga Karaçelik, CITIZEN KANE by Orson Welles, DIE WELLE by Dennis Gansel and ZODIAC by David Fincher.
