Mu Tunc
 

Mu Tunc is a director and writer from Istanbul. His love for storytelling began at a young age recording the first ever punk concerts in Istanbul, which his older brother was a part of.

 
Even before Mu Tunc could talk he was making the sign of the horns.

Growing up with Punk music gave Mu the idea to “do things by yourself” and “do whatever you want” which was an important spirit to get hold of at an early age.

 

ARADA is his debut feature film

that tells the story of a punk kid who wants to leave Istanbul. Based on a true story, the film shows the inception of the underground music scene in the 90’s Istanbul and it has been considered as one of the first punk movies ever made in Turkish cinema.
