This project is under development.


Invited by the Tanpınar Literature Festival, organized in Turkey, the acclaimed Argentian writer Alberto Manguel comes to Turkey and visits the cities mentioned in Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar’s “Five Cities”.

He returns France in order to write a book on the observations he made during this literary journey into Tanpınar’s subjective world and Anatolia’s rich cultural and historical heritage.

The documentary “In Search of Tanpınar” not only transforms Manguel’s journey to the five cities mentioned in Tanpınar’s opus magnum and Manguel’s humble life in a small French town into a visual banquet but also takes the viewer to a journey through the time tunnel with two author’s unique expressions.
