Nothing caused more dramatic change in Turkey as the first screening of Midnight Express at Cannes Film Festival 1978. Not even the Arab Spring happening now.
Midnight Express is based on the true story of Billy Hayes' five years in a brutal, sadistic prison for trying to smuggle hashish out of Istanbul in 1970. With no release in sight, Hayes donned a prison guard uniform then escaped Turkey through an underground railroad the prisoners called the Midnight Express. See our YouTube upload for a scene here!
