I Loved You So”, produced by Medyaton / Nurdan Tümbek Tekeoğlu and directed by Orhan Tekeoğlu, will meet audiences on 27 September, distributed by Pinema.

With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Olga, the granddaughter of Mustafa Usta, a stonemason who has migrated to Yalta, Ukraine from the village of Santa in Trabzon, Turkey, loses her job, and heads to Trabzon to find work. The young Olga meets Cemal, a bold, young man in Trabzon, at a time when all Russian women in Trabzon are stereotyped as prostitutes. Immigration, broken homes and prejudice are the main themes of the film.

The Director of Photography is Ercan Yılmaz, a veteran of Turkish cinema.

 

Orhan Tekeoğlu has written the script for his directorial debut “I Loved You So” based on many actual life stories from the 1990s. Principal photography for the movie began on the 15th of May in Trabzon, and was concluded on the 4th of June at the Santa ruins on the Trabzon-Gümüşhane border. The soundtrack for the movie has the signature of Selim Bölükbaşı.
