Yörük Aborigine - Film Project
Supported by the Ministry of Culture in Turkey, Yoruk Aborigine is a co-production of Turkey-Australia and it is an international feature-length film project.<span style="\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"color:rgb(0," 0,="" 0);="" font-family:lato,sans-serif;="" font-size:15px\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"="">The project involves two different communities – Yoruks and Aborigines – which have two different social structures and cultures. The film highlights the similarities between two distinct cultural codes and aims to point out the recent development of their cultural reality, created by the cultural assimilations of the two cultures over time. Being a bi-lingual (English and Turkish) project, it creates awareness through comparing the culture of the Yoruk heritage who are struggling to maintain their cultural customs and traditional lifestyle within limited natural conditions and the changed social structure of Australian Aborigines who have had similar problems in their history.World-renowned Aboriginal actor and activist Jack Charles is working with the Yoruk Aborigine Project which will be shot both in the Toros Mountains between the triangle of Mersin, Antalya, Konya and in the State of Victoria in Australia.
