Ayse Sasa, a legend of Turkish cinema, has passed away in hospital where she was undergoing treatment.
Born in 1941 in Istanbul, Ayse Sasa went on to write a number of famous books and films since 1963.
After suffering great psychological trauma in the 1980s, she stopped writing scripts for the big screen for a decade until her work began to appear again in 1993.
In her early years she was known as a keen Marxist, but she later changed route, preferring to live a more intellectual/spiritual lifstyle.
This began to show in her work, which was heavily influenced by the teachings of Ibn Arabi and Andrei Tarkovsky.
