âBaÅka Tren GÄ±dÄ± GÄ±dÄ±â (The GÄ±dÄ± GÄ±dÄ± - A Different Kind of Train)On 18 December 2018, documentary director Yasin Ali TÃ¼rkeri visited Bilkent to show and discuss his documentary film, âBaÅka Tren GÄ±dÄ± GÄ±dÄ±â (The GÄ±dÄ± GÄ±dÄ± - A Different Kind of Train). The film was released in 2018 and tells the story of the Nazilli SÃ¼merbank Textile factory that was built with Soviet assistance in the 1930s. The documentary approaches the story through the GÄ±dÄ± GÄ±dÄ±, a train that belonged to the plant and which now waits quietly inside the closed factory for passengers that will never appear. After the film, Yasin Bey joined faculty and students for a wide-ranging conversation that covered, among other things, the research done for the film and how people in both Turkey and Russia responded to his project. The event was organized by the Bilkent Center for Russian Studies.
