Son Buluşma (The Last Meeting)
Director: Nesli Çölgeçen, 2007
90 minutes – Turkey
A depiction of the memoires and daily life of three of the last veterans of the Turkish War of Independence (1919–1923). Marksman Private Ömer from Çorum pays first a visit to his commander, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, at Anıtkabir in Ankara. He then travels to meet his comrades, Combat Medic Corporal Veysel in Konya and Cavalryman Yakup in Eskişehir. When the film was shot in 2006, Ömer Küyük was 106 years old, Veysel Turan 105 and Yakup Satar 108. In the film, they remember the wartime and say farewell to each other.
Shortly after the material for the documentary was filmed, all three veterans died, and so they did not see the premiere in 2008, held in Çorum, the hometown of Ömer Küyük.
