Born in Germany, the young director Hüseyin Tabak won many awards in Turkey with his debut feature film Your Beauty is Worth Nothing (2012) and went on to film the documentary The Legend of the Ugly King (2017) which tells the life story of Yılmaz Güney. Tabak’s latest film tells the story of a young woman who has to fight on dark boxing rings to provide for her two children. Alina Şerban shines with her performance as she plays Ali, who has to fight much prejudice as a Roman woman living alone with her children. Inspired by the tradition of sports drama, Gipsy Queen features the dynamic editing of boxing films, and leaves plenty of room for the humor inherent in life.
