Traces the history of Turkey - the land bridge between Europe and Asia. For more than 3,000 years the great events of these two continents centred on Turkey. The remains of the Greek civilisation, the crusades, and ancient Constantinople are contrasted with scenes of modern Istanbul.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
