                                                       that began when the Otoman Empire started to lose
                                                       its territories and what ensued during the 20th
                                                       century including political developments and their
                                                       reflections in our day through the perspective of the
                                                       immigrants. In away it draws a Picture of
                                                       contemporary Turkey with its villages established by
                                                       immigrants and cities enlarged by immigration and
                                                       sheds light on a process progressing over centuries
                                                       on a vast land. It was a journey from Edirne to Kars
                                                       describing extraordinary accounts of ordinary
                                                       people extending all over the world due to unusual
                                                       incidents and crises. The aim of the documentary is
                                                       to disclose that the stories related are not only the
                                                       stories of immigrants, but of everyone.

                                                       Some part of Turkish society preferred to emigrate

                                                       from the lands where dominance was lost, whereas
                                                       some other part did not leave the lands they were
                                                       living on.

                                                       They continued to keep their culture, language,
                                                       traditions and customs alive, despite all the
                                                       difficulties faced.

                                                       They sent their roots deep down during their
                                                       dominance times and tried to survive like the herbs
                                                       holding the rocks when they became minorities.

                                                       They insisted to keep Turkish culture and Turkish
                                                       language with courage and loyalty, although it was
                                                       very difficult to hold on.

                                                       This programme is about the stories and little

                                                       Last Mills 5x30’
                                                       The Last Mills, is a story of water mills which have
                                                       been decreasing in number day by day in Anatolia.
                                                       The water mill is one of the first and most important
                                                       technological inventions of man and is also a rich
                                                       cultural heritage. In this documentary, the stories of
                                                       two different water mills in two different villages are
                                                       told. In the village Akkaya- Giresun, the mills are
                                                       operated by women whose departure to the mills
                                                       involve certain rituals. In the operation of mills
                                                       where the wheat, corn and barley are ground into
                                                       flour, the most important concept is the miller’s
                                                       right. The word right has two meanings. It means
                                                       both justice and share of fee. The water mills
                                                       constructed by benevolent people, are left to the use
                                                       of villagers from one generation to the other and the
                                                       villagers don’t make any payment for using them.

                                                       Whereas, there is a miller in Tortum- Erzurum and
                                                       he operates it under a system of trade based on
                                                       right- a kind of a barter-system. In Erzurum, a mill
                                                       in some occassions serves as a cultural center and
                                                       even as a center of entertainment. In the
                                                       documentary, the mill culture is reflected on the
                                                       screen as narrated through the original talks of
                                                       villagers and with sections taken from actual life.

                                                       Their lives are far away from hurries; since they lead
                                                       calm lives without any boundaries of time. They
                                                       prefer solid and hermit lives. Compared to ordinary
                                                       people they perceived time differently and led it
                                                       accordingly. They have a direct contact with the
                                                       clocks they mend, not with the flowing time. Clocks
                                                       are not only instruments measuring time. When you
                                                       meet these people, time changes, it slows down. You
                                                       feel yourself out of your life, flowing down the
                                                       current of a smooth river. If you are in television
                                                       business, it is a problem. While you swagger in their
                                                       quiet worlds, you also have to accelerate for your
                                                       occupation. Furthermore, you have to challenge with
                                                       their hermit personalities. It is almost impossible to
                                                       reach them beyond their hard shells. To make them
                                                       express their feelings without ‘using words.’
                                                       Because they just live without speaking. During the
                                                       interviews, you can only get a few words from them.
                                                       Actually you are far away from their vast knowledge
                                                       of time and clocks. You can only record how they
                                                       started their careers and their love for clocks…

                                                       On March 3,1924, The Turkish Grand National
                                                       Assembly passed a law, putting an end to the

                                                       Abdülmecid and his family were exiled.

                                                       There were thirty-six men, forty-eight women and
                                                       sixty children, a total of one hundred and forty four

                                                       Ottoman dynasty.

                                                       Each person was given 1000 British Sterling and a
                                                       passport which was valid for one year. There was a
                                                       notation on each passport which said that it could

                                                       A train at the Sirkeci Station departed on the
                                                       evening of March 5, and at the same time a ship
                                                       pulled up anchor at a nearby wharf, the train was

                                                       sail to Beirut.

                                                       The sound of the train whistle at a quarter to nine
                                                       seemed to announce the fact that the members of

                                                       As for their history, it would be completely different

                                                       or a situation is torn between… The point where
                                                       concepts melt their meanings… This is the land

                                                       everyone knows, discovered, but which no one dares
                                                       to name.

                                                       Purgatory is hanging between East and West; it is to

                                                       purgatory is at times the place where the majority

                                                       and real, it is the viewing of the glittering world of

                                                       purgatory, it is getting stuck in somewhere in time;
                                                       purgatory is the republic where the masses gather…
                                                       Purgatory is the where almost everyone is involved,
                                                       in one way or the other, in any side of the life, in one
                                                       side of the memory, and on the outskirts of thinking.
                                                       Purgatory is sometimes Turkey, sometimes being
                                                       neither urban nor rural; a squatter resident and
                                                       most of the time it is the place where the people of
                                                       the 21st century find themselves. It is not being in
                                                       the black or white, it is wandering through the
                                                       shades of gray, and being in between desire and
                                                       pain, and reward and sin; and in short, purgatory is
                                                       a dilemma…

                                                      The first sport they attempt is kite surfing, a sport so
                                                      challenging that our trained Adventurers are only

                                                      entire city just by hanging to a glider. This sport is
                                                      fun but is also extremely dangerous at the same

                                                       from hand to hand and lighting it’s fire. Times lived
                                                       when those two objects became more than means of
                                                       knowledge transmission and they became form of
                                                       an art in masterly hands. And people burned in the
                                                       fire of knowledge, gave their lives on the road to
                                                       transmit it and sometimes paper and pen turned to
                                                       ash in the hands of people who are scared of
                                                       knowledge. But Phoenix gathered up the ashes and
                                                       scattered them again to the children of knowledge
                                                       and paper and pen then again became mediators for
                                                       the dreamers of eternity. Pen became a fire for the
                                                       ones who look and see, for the ones who see and
                                                       know and for the ones who wants to verbalize what
                                                       is learned on every step of the time. And the secrets
                                                       became a sound, became a word on paper.

                                                       The history of rose is as old as the history of
                                                       mankind. In the course of time, Isparta and its
                                                       vicinity have become a magnificent rose garden
                                                       where the roses which yield the best oil in the world
                                                       are being growth. The local peasants, becoming
                                                       exporters have taken the first place in the world,
                                                       among the manufacturers of the oil of roses.

                                                       The process of yielding the oil, is an adventure in
                                                       itself. This process, during in which the delicate pink
                                                       rose tries to yield its oil without losing the smell of
                                                       its leaves, is really a hard and long adventure. The
                                                       rose neither has the patience to wait nor likes the


                                                       While yielding its oil, it behaves coy. Since the
                                                       grower knows how coy it is, he shows a great
