Viewing Notes:

A Turkish film actor, Erol Taş, features in the documentary, which is about the project of putting the water out in 1968.

While the focus of the documentary is the project, a story of three miners dramatizes the narrative; a voice-over narration with the nationalist subtext accompanies the dialogues, non-diegetic sound, and images.
