The Movie is Finished!

On the 28th of August, Kristina flew to Turkey during the weekend just to give the new DVDs of the movie to the Yoruk Black Tent Makers. There was a warm welcome and a big meeting with happy faces. After all, it is also a meeting of friends after a long time as Kristina and her husband can only come to the place once a year.

Thanks to the eager work of Andreas Daniel the movie got finished in time and gets presented in two languages: German and English.

The professional print of the DVDs will start soon!

In Turkey, this weekend, there was a big party of both families of Simsek and Surgun with lots of food and smiling faces.

Still there was some sad news to share. Grandfather Simsek, who was one of the stars of the movie, has died 45 days ago due to illness. He was a loved and honored old man. Everybody respected him and he attained a proud age of 80 years.

As well, all the old tents that are shown in the movie have already disappeared forever, except but for one. And the family Simsek has built themselves a new tent one year after the movie was recorded. If it was not for us, they would have never had the idea of getting a new tent once more in these modern times.

Therefore, we are happy to have done the movie early enough in 2007. Some years later we would not have had the chance any more.

Finishing the Movie

Meanwhile, we have the finalisation of the movie fixed. The end-mastering will take place in the middle of August. End of August the movie will be presented to the nomads in Western Turkey. We prepare some DVDs for each family as presents :-) Nowadays, nomads do have all the equipment to view movies at any occasion.
The advertising will start in the middle of August. We plan to present the movie to the public in October/November 2010. Further dates in the cinema and on tv are in discussion.

The movie will be available in German and English and distributed by the iva-icra.org.

Wish us luck :-)
