Dedemin İnsanları (My Grandfather's People)

Çagan Irmak, 126 min, Comedy/ Drama/ Family, in Turkish with English subtitles, 2011

PG 13

A story of a grandpapa and his family who were torn from their land and forced to migrate from Crete during the population exchange when he was just seven years old. His greatest desire is to see the land of his birth before he dies. It is this longing that makes him frequently drop bottles containing letters into the Aegean. The film describes the spectacular transformation of a family and their country through the eyes of a ten-year old child and his grandfather living in a small town. It is the story of the people in the crowded and warm Aegean, what it means to be the other, the ability to belong anywhere no matter where you go, insurrections, numerous minorities, and both sides.

The movie has won the SIYAD Turkish Film Critics Association Award as well as the Turkish Cinema Award for Best Art Direction.
