“Horse Bold’s legendary rider is dead…”

The newspapers reported the death of the most heroic horse that Turkey had ever seen, with all its details and history.

May the soul rest in peace for a dead horse

PRODUCTION: Ay Yapım, Med Production


DIRECTOR: Ahmet Katiksiz… The shots, the frames, the moments and the emotions are great shots…

Mostly Halis KaratasI will never forget that moment of dramatic silence in Veliefendi with the scene of horses running sideways as .


SCENARIO: Ahmet Katiksız, Serkan Yörük… Adapting real-life stories to movies is both easy and very difficult.

It takes great art to supplement the moments when real life falls into monotony with dramatic fiction. The writers successfully played on the real-life timeline and created wonderful drama.


PLAYERS: Ekin Koç: It proved how much of a face game that leaves its simplicity and dosed gestures can become, and how much can be explained with less.

Farah Zeynep Abdullah: The Butterfly’s Dream and tart applesI loved it too. It’s great here too.

Fikret Kuskan: in the movie Ozdemir Atman He puts such a wonderful person in front of us in his role that you watch with hope and love. A person who whispers to horses, a wonderful father, an extraordinarily understanding stud owner…
