Çetin İnanç (Born in Ankara on September 12, 1941) is a Turkish film director who has directed movies for the past five decades. He is infamously known as the director of Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam (1982), aka "Turkish Star Wars".
Inanç spent his youth pursuing a career in Law, and later abandoned his career. He began his cinema career as the assistant of well-known Turkish director Atıf Yılmaz. In 1967 he made his first movie Çelik Bilek based on an Italian comics character. He quickly moved into the niche market of producing erotica, but was dissuaded from that path as military took over in Turkey and passed several censorship laws against adult movies. His next venture was action movies, including his most famous work Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam, a low-budget space saga infamously dubbed the "Turkish Star Wars".
He was nicknamed as "jet director" in Turkish cinema circles since he shot most of his films in around 10 days.
