Saroyanland – Saroyan Ülkesi (Yazar #WilliamSaroyan Belgeseli directed by #LusinDink)

SAROYANLAND

The author William Saroyan, the child of an exiled Armenian family, was born in the United States in 1908. He always portrayed himself as an American and a Bitlis-tsi, an Armenian from the city of Bitlis in Turkey. In 1964 he made a long voyage in Anatolia, leading him to his home town Bitlis. The docu-drama road movie “SaroyanLand” tells the story of this voyage, making use of his own memoirs and short stories, as well as the accounts of his travelling companions. In Saroyan’s own words, told by a voice over, we see his anger, passion, longing for his homeland, ability of empathy and love of humankind. he script of the film, based on interviews, reenactment of Saroyan’s stories, and the authors memoirs is a collage of his voyage in Turkey, told in his own words.While replicating Saroyan’s voyage 49 years later, we witness the self discovery of a man, who by following the traces of his ancestors, also finds himself.

 

SAROYAN ÜLKESİ

Yazar William Saroyan sürgün bir Ermeni ailenin çocuğu olarak 1908’de Amerika’da doğar. Kendisini her zaman Ermeni, Amerika’lı ve Bitlistsi (Ermenice:Bitlis’li) olarak tanımlar. 1964’te uzun bir Anadolu yolculuğuna çıkar. ‘Saroyan Ülkesi’, gerek yol arkadaşlarının tanıklıklıkları, gerekse Saroyan’ın kendi anıları ve hikayeleri aracılığıyla yazarın öfkesini, tutkusunu, özlemini, empati yetisini ve insan sevgisini sergilemektedir. Dolayısıyla filmin senaryosu söyleşilere, Saroyan’ın öykü canlandırmalarına ve bütünüyle bir kolaj olarak kurgulanan Saroyan’ın kendi sözlerine dayanmaktadır. Kırkdokuz yıl sonra Saroyan’ın yolculuğunun izinde, atalarının peşinden giden bir adamın kendisini bir kez daha keşfedişine tanıklık edeceğiz.
