We are currently in production for Iztuzu, a feature documentary for cinema. Following the adventures of one extended family, our film tells the story of a Turkish idyll saved from corporate exploitation by the local villagers, a British socialite, and the sea turtles that nest on Iztuzu Beach.
After an international campaign to protect the loggerhead turtles of Iztuzu beach, the beautiful Dalyan Delta was made a nature reserve. Within a decade the tiny Muslim community of Dalyan, home to 240 souls, became a global village welcoming 100,000 European tourists a year. Now apparent strife between the Islamic world and ‘the West’ has frightened the tourists away, the turtles face new threats, and the people of Dalyan must re-invent their lives once more.
