Another Version of Events: Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam (The Man Who Saved the World) AKA Turkish Starwars (1982)
Director Çetin Inanç, 1982, Turkey, 91 min

This blatant copying, alongside the film’s psychedelic visual style and extravagant costumed characters, make it an instant cult classic. When a spaceship crash lands on a desert planet, an outrageous adventure ensues…
Another Version of Events is the official Liverpool Biennial 2016 film programme. A selection of films influenced by genres including sci-fi, mockumentary, pseudo-documentary, mockbuster and ethnofiction is being screened every week throughout the Biennial.
