Abstract

The concept of migration can be defined as physical space changing. Immigration defines the migration act as well as the difficulties encountered in adapting to new worlds. Their children, named as second-generation, adapted more easily than their parents to the new country. These people, described as “hybrid,” benefited from the advantages of hybridization, but, at the same time, they experienced the complexity of identity and culture. One of these people is Fatih Akın, who is a child of a family that immigrated to Germany to work. Akın has used his versatility sourced from his immigrant identity and addressed the phenomenon of migration from different perspectives. Akın, who is in an important position in cinema concept described as “cinema of migration,” has been awarded many awards in international film festivals. In this study, the concept of migration and immigrants in the Fatih Akın cinema was examined. In the study, firstly concepts such as migration, immigration, migrant cinema were discussed; then the findings were interpreted and finally discussed in the conclusion section.
