MIDNIGHT RETURN: THE STORY OF BILLY HAYES AND TURKEY

Directed by : Sally SUSSMAN

Year of production : 2015 Length : 99 minutes

Synopsis

After his ingenious escape from a Turkish prison in 1975, Billy Hayes arrived home to a hero’s welcome, instant celebrity and within a week had a book and movie deal for his story. From the moment it stunned the world at the Cannes Film Festival in 1978, 'Midnight Express' cemented its place in film history as an artistic and financial success, before becoming an indelible part of pop culture. But its lasting impact has been on Turkish people worldwide who blame Billy Hayes for defaming them and their country. In an effort to clear his conscience Billy attempts a rapprochement with the Turkish nation but is refused entry. It is only when he receives an invitation from a most unlikely source that he returns to Turkey and faces a nation still haunted by the film and his own demons.
