Devrim Arabaları "Revolution Cars"
Docudrama recreation of the race by the engineers of the State Railroad Directorate at Eskişehir, following the 1961 coup d'état by Cemal Gursel, to build the first Turkish automobile. A simple yet successful procedural approach to great effect to follow the production of the "Devrim" car from its inception to it's bittersweet final test whilst never losing track of the fascinating characters behind its creation in a surprisingly moving story. (IMDb). Refreshments will be served at the event.
