Documentary on literary project wins award in Boston

27 December 2011, Tuesday /TODAY’S ZAMAN
A documentary recounting the story of the İstanbul Goethe Institut’s 2010 literary project called “European Literature Goes to Turkey -- Turkish Literature Goes to Europe” has won a special mention prize at this year’s Boston Turkish Festival, news agencies reported Tuesday.

Titled “Yollarda…/Unterwegs” (On the Road), co-directed by Sabine Küper Büsch and Thomas Büsch, the documentary focuses on the Bookmobile, a traveling library that was part of the “European Literature Goes to Turkey -- Turkish Literature Goes to Europe” project, which traveled to 24 provinces in Turkey and eight European cities throughout 2010.

“Yollarda…/Unterwegs” was one of the five documentaries that won special mentions in the 16th Boston Turkish Festival’s Documentary and Short Film Competition, which took place Dec. 1-8.
