Experiencing a totally new culture isn’t always the easiest thing for people nowadays. Most are caught up in the minutia of daily life and the rat race, but sometimes we’re afforded a way out. Filmmaker Leonardo Dalessandri has given us a beautiful look at Turkey in his short film called Watchtower of Turkey. He describes the project as such.
Over than 3500 km traveled in 20 days, capturing landscapes from the bluish tones of Pamukkale to the warm ones of Cappadocia, the all passing by a great variation of colors, lights and weathers through six other cities. I’ve crossed Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Istanbul, Konya; and tasted baklava, kunefe, doner, the turkish tea; and got the chance to meet the soul of Turkey, its people.. and got their smiles and their hospitality.
This is Turkey lived by me from north to south, and I hope you enjoy it 🙂
