Silk Road films pass through Bursa

The festival program, which consists of the latest films from Serbia, Bulgaria, Spain, Italy, Georgia, Hungary, Japan and Turkey—all countries that were on the Silk Road—includes as well the legendary Turkish film, ‘Selvi Boylum Al Yazmalım’, on the occasion of its 30th anniversary.
