Director Sude Kizik has turned the story of Baby Aylan, which became the symbol of the war in Syria, into a movie. In the movie which was shot by Avrasya Media Union and the production company Seven Entertainment within the union, tragedy of the refugee families is told.
IT HAS A UNIVERSAL SUBJECT
Sude Kizik, third class student of Bahcesehir University's Cinema TV Department, said "We have targeted to reach to the audience in the international platform while creating the movie 'Why?'. In fact, the movie has a universal subject. I think that I have taken care not to address to only a certain audience and region. Therefore, I have targeted to make the movie shown only in the international movie festivals".
"WE TRIED TO LOOK AT THE WORLD FROM AN INNOCENT EYE"
Kizik, who mentioned that they turned the tragedy of refugees into a movie based on Baby Aylan, said "We tried to look at the world from an innocent eye. Was the world or the eye innocent? We have left this decision to the audience. For me, success is that the film reaches all audiences and its message is understood correctly".
Halit Ziya Alptekin, the General President of Avrasya Media Union, stated that the movie 'Why?' is a questioning and message-giving movie, and said "We, as the Union, create projects in national and moral subjects. The movie 'Why?' is one of them. Sometime very soon, we will continue our services with remarkable projects in many national projects with the support of our Presidency".
