Born in Istanbul in 1982, Can Evrenol graduated in joint honours, Art History and Film Studies at The University of Kent at Canterbury. Began his career as an independent horror short filmmaker, later working as a TVC director in Istanbul. Evrenol co-wrote, co-produced, and directed two internationally acclaimed cult horror films; Baskin and Housewife, plus a segment in the horror anthology The Field Guide To Evil. Evrenol was the first-ever Turkish director to helm a Netflix original series, with The Protector. Later, in his 3rd feature film, Girl With No Mouth, he pursued yet another type of genre cinema, a postapocalyptic kids-on-a-mission movie, mixing arthouse and 80’s mainstream sensibilities. In 2020, he co-wrote and directed an 8 episode mini-series Ciplak, a drama about a call girl in Istanbul, shot on iPhone.
