Deemed the "Castle of Anatolia" and a crucial accommodation center for trade between Iran-India and the Middle East since the Medieval Ages, the city of Erzurum will be promoted in Turkey and in the international arena with the documentary "Zirvelerin Şehri Erzurum" (Erzurum: The City of Peaks.)
With support from the Erzurum Metropolitan Municipality, many artists and scientists, the documentary took 2.5 years to complete. It includes images from four seasons in the city and focuses on important historical and natural areas such as the ski resort Palandöken Mountain, mosques and large tombs and domes.
The international gala for the documentary, which includes a journey of 26,500 kilometers, is scheduled to take place in Tabriz in Iran in the coming days. The Turkish gala, on the other hand, is to take place in Ankara.Moreover, the documentary will be released on national and international channels towards the end of December. The film was directed by Halil Demirci, who said that he believed they presented a wonderful work of art about the Castle of Anatolia, Erzurum and that all facades of the city have been reflected on the screen.
Pointing to the importance of Erzurum in history, Demirci noted that there is something that "penetrates one's soul about Erzurum.""The roads leading east, west and north and south among mountains are intertwined in Erzurum, showing another face of modern Turkey. Erzurum's colors and light never leave you alone for a second and fill your soul with the delight of spring. Erzurum is undergoing many innovations, and the atmosphere heralds much brighter things on the way for Erzurum," he said.
He highlighted that the city offers a visual feast and is like an open air museum with its geographical structure, towers, castles, madrassas, martyr cemeteries, education institutions, mosques, tombs, museums, bridges, mountains, valleys, overflowing rivers, lakes, waterfalls, fairy chimneys, wild life and endemic flora.
