    • Synopsis
    • A space story from Erzincan...
      1957... A remote village in the Erzincan area of eastern Turkey... Four impassioned villagers make plans to travel to the moon, convinced that their mission will succeed. Their adventure is told in the picture-book style of the period through black & white photographs. And the clipped tones of the local narrator leave all emotion to the audience.
      As events unfold, they are given explanation by prominent Turkish intellectuals with scientific experience in different fields. And as the various aspects of these events are examined, the audience is drawn into ‘outlandish’ territory. Watching the film gives the sense less of a historical documentary than of an in-depth study of contemporary Turkish culture.
