Turkish writer’s book to be made into a movie

Acclaimed Turkish writer Ayse Kulin is to see her book “Sevdalinka” turned into a movie.

The book, about the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina will be made into a movie by Aida Begic, a young female director from Bosnia and Herzegovina. As part of the project, Kulin has been writing a screenplay of the novel and recently discussed with Begic about how to turn the book into a movie.

Talking about the potential of a move, Kulin said the book is about: “The pain of Bosnia citizens. All the events in the book reflect the real life events.” Kulin recently attended a Bosnian literature festival where she revealed that her roots come from Bosnia as her grandparents came to Turkey from Bosnia. She said: “I wrote Sevdalinka and felt the pain of all the people.”
