The Children of Müslüm Baba investigates the fanatical devotees of Turkey’s leading arabesque singer, the
recently deceased Müslüm Gürses. Being a ‘Müslümcü’ (fans of Müslüm Gürses) is more than a musical
choice, it is a form of identity. The documentary thereby encourages the audience to question all the
concepts used to identify the state of “being a fan”.
Vuslat Saraçoğlu graduated from Istanbul Bilgi University with a degree in Sociology and International
Relations. She went on to study Modern Turkish History at Boğaziçi University, but discontinued her course
at the thesis stage. Her short, Kakafoni, was screened at numerous national and international festivals.
