Ac Kurtlar (Hungry Wolves) is the second feature film of Yilmaz Guney as a director. It is based on a novel by Haydar Turan and is considered to be a Turkish Western. The movie was shot in the snowy eastern city of Mus, and was never shown in movie theaters at its time because of a ban by Film Control Commission in Turkey. The main character Memed is a fugitive with a sole purpose to find and execute bandits in the mountains. When a rich landowner wants to avenge the death of his father, he hires Memed as a bounty hunter. During his hunt, Memed saves a woman from the hands of bandits. —Turkish Film Channel
