After the Death of Nijat Özön

Abstract

Nijat Özön has made it possible for film lovers in Turkey to understand the art of film in greater detail through his books on cinema, such as Sinema Sanatına Giriş (Introduction to the Art of Cinema) and 100 Soruda Sinema (Cinema in 100 Questions), and through his important translations. He also filled a significant gap in the history of Turkish cinema through his research on the subject, including Karagözden Sinemaya (From Karagöz to Cinema) and Türk Sinema Tarihi 1895-1960 (Turkish Cinema History 1895-1960), his two most important works. Oğuz Onaran had a close relationship with Nijat Özön , who recently passed away, and has written a heartfelt tribute.
