Viewing Notes:

The commemoration night was most probably the last concert of Ruhi Su, with a ban on leaving the country after the 1980 Turkish coup d'état.

The film is a series of concerts, poem performances, and plays of a Turkish folklore group. Some poem performances highlight political messages as well.
