Mass media, which is used not only to reach many people easily but also to inform, direct, influence and educate people, is the most important devices of the 21st Century. Cinema, which is used to educate people, as well as to entertain, influence and direct them, is accepted and used as the most important cultural conveyor of the 21st century. Cinema has the feature of reflecting the social, political and cultural changes and of contributing to reconstruction of reality. As a result of the political processes and crises in countries, the incompatibility of the social structure has brought the issue of distrust of the people against politics and politicians. This study focuses on how cinema may play role on educational patters of individuals and can even affect politicians to protect their legitimacy. This effect is searched by discourse analysis to find whether politician’s education level is significant on the public within the perspective of films. The study analyses the film “Hasip and Nasip” as the case study which gave the most important and distinctive examples of ‘politician representation’ in the period between two coups.
