THOSE WHO TELL THE TRUTH
A protest music as old as time
In the back streets of Anatolia, Turkey, a protest music as old as time resonates.
Through their stories, words, and sounds, musicians weave a symphony of resistance against the threatening shadow of authoritarian rule. Their saz, a long-necked lute, becomes the sharp blade of a musical-political adventure.
This film reveals the complexities, contradictions, and struggles of Turkish society today through music that symbolizes a history in constant reinvention.
