Mertkan has a simple life in Istanbul: 'working' as an office-boy in his dad's construction company, hanging out with his male friends in malls and discos, cruising with his dad's 4-wheel drive at night. There is no urgency for him to find a meaning to this emptiness. When he meets Gul, a Kurdish girl from Eastern Turkey, putting herself through university by working as a waitress, Mertkan has a chance to change the futility of his life. But his father opposes his connection with 'those people who only want to divide our country' and reminds Mertkan that 'we are all Turkish and we are all Muslims'. Insidiously Mertkan bows to the social values of the 'Majority' when faced with a choice, and becomes the 'proper man' his dad wanted him to be.

I think that Punk music itself is about free-expression. I know that sounds overly simplified. What this kind of music is, has never really been defined because it can't be narrowed down to a specific lexicon. Free-expression could mean anything at all, that doesn't sound bad on the surface right? Well, when you sing about teen angst, nihilism and get access to lots of addictive substances and behaviors then the concerned parent or best friend gets very alarmed. That would seem normal in maybe another story, but this is about the LA Punk band "The Germs" and Darby Crash, a guy who was very intelligent, lonely and disturbed. Darby Crash might have achieved a great deal more in his life, but did not. What he did achieve was to help shape a form of free expression in music that has generated a lot of interest. Record company and Radio executives have never been able to figure out how to shape and package this formula to the American public because it's not safe for general consumption. It's as disturbing as it is dangerous and legal matters like "Danger" are risky even in the best of times. Obviously in these stressed music industry times just getting a product like this feature film finished is a testimony to the relentless struggle that the Director, Producers and the cast had to deal with to get this story produced. The director Rodger Grossman and an arsenal of producers necessary to produce this film starting with Picture Machine producers Matthew Perniciaro & Kevin Mann, Producer Todd Trania, Producer Stephen Nemeth from Rhino Records and Line Producer Bruce Wayne Gillies should be congratulated for their perseverance in bringing this very important story about the Germs to the Screen, hopefully they'll even make a little back on the investment. I should say that I have never met any of these people and I am only an interested fan of the music itself, having spent some of my own money to acquire a few examples of the Punk music style to listen to myself. My only impressions of Punk music here in Dallas, TX are from pre-recorded media. The short, fast life of punk music was a fairy tale, still whispered in clubs around here as an unimportant and highly useless pursuit for the fans and the serious musician to listen to. It is because of the poor recording standards and the few scattered examples from a local Texas punk scene, that these stories linger and ask you to look further into it. Ask the Butthole Surfers in Wichita Falls, Texas. Ask LA band X or Iggy Pop from Detroit Michigan if punk was a brief moment in time and they might reply that it was and still is the most exciting form of music ever performed. More successful groups from around the LA scene all claim that The Germs were the best in the late 70's at this revolutionary style of music. Sadly there are few recordings available of this explosively original band. What we have available are a small group of independently produced EP fan records, a 1993 CD Anthology Slash/Rhino records MIA: The Complete Anthology, a small appearance in Penelope Spheeris' 1979-1980 documentary The Decline of Western Civilization" and a credit for a single song "Lion's Share" on the soundtrack to a 1980 feature film "Cruising". The professional accomplishments of the actors in the film are all well known and I hope that this film will help to add to their catalog of well deserved accomplishments.
