Synopsis: Due to the new censorship regulations and erosion of their social rights in 1977, cinema workers made a decision to march. In this way, the 60 years of silence on the part of cinema workers would be ended too. More than 400 cinema workers, including actors/actresses, workers of the crew and directors, initiated a march on 5th November to Ankara that would take three days. They marched under the puzzled look of the public, who also supported them. This documentary is the story of that long-forgotten march that is actually a proud milestone in the history of Turkish cinema.

Director: He was born in Istanbul in 1978. He directed his first documentary “Beşikdüzü Village Institute” in 2004. He has continued to make documentaries in the ensuing years. He worked in a local newspaper and contributed to various newspapers and magazines. He continues his postgraduate studies at the Department of Radio, Television and Cinema in Ankara University.
