Turkey has not been able to produce a groundbreaking documentary for her forefather in these 70 years. The complete story of Ataturk has been told neither to Turkey nor to the rest of the world.
The previous documentaries of Ataturk have always been limited with certain periods of his life and remained within the scope of Turkey.
There has never been a documentary which puts his whole life under the microscope; encompassing it from Salonica to Dolmabahce Palace, portraying him with all of his dimensions and adressing both to Turkey and to the world.
There has never been a documentary produced by such a team of experts working under the guidance of professional advisors
... a documentary which takes Ataturk beyond bits and pieces of information...
... and destined to be a fundamental source of referance.
By covering all the geography he has ever set his foot on: from Salonica to Macedonia, from Damascus to Tripoli, from Sophia to Karlsbad, from Paris to Dardanells...
By gathering all the images and photographs of him that has reached to our day...
By examining the best of the national and international sources written on this subject and filtering a genuine, humane and objective life story from them.
By meticulously compiling all the knowledge we can derive from the documents he left behind, the furniture he used, the houses he lived in, the music he loved to listen, his quotes and the accounts given by those who knew him.
We produced this documentary worthy of him, as a “70th anniversary gift to Ataturk”.
