“Watchtower of Turkey” is a timelapse short film by Leonardo Dalessandri shot over 20 days and 3,500 km travelled. Leandro adds:
“I’ve crossed Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Istanbul, Konya; and tasted baklava, kunefe, doner, the turkish tea; and got the chance to meet the soul of Turkey, its people.. and got their smiles and their hospitality. This is Turkey lived by me from north to south”
While many timelapses often focus on the buildings, landscapes and places; I love how this film captures the spirit of the Turkish people and the creative transitions from person to person rather than just place to place.
For those curious, the beautiful soundtrack is “Experience” by Ludovico Einaudi.
