Erden Kiral Tribute

The Blue Exile / Erden Kiral

The Blue Exile is a fictionalized account of a period in the life of a Turkish journalist who was condemned to exile for an article he wrote about WWI deserters. He turned his punishment into a reward by creating a little paradise in what is today the holiday resort of Bodrum. Kiral uses the epic journey to Bodrum as a poetic meditation on the journalist’s life, and also as a search for the meaning of life.
