The three journalists were traveling across Turkey to prepare a documentary entitled “Travelers of Culture in Havana – Three men on Track of Three Artists” before Dündar was imprisoned.
After long journeys across different points of Turkey, from Balkans to Van, Diyarbakır to Istanbul, veteran journalists Dünar, Özgentürk and Aral have been tracking cultures, identities and the “us”.
Within a documentary series with 11 episodes, the work has also searched the traces of three artists, Nazım Hikmet, Ernest Hemingway and Alberto Korsa in Cuba, in September 2015.
Turkish poet Nazım Hikmet has headed to Cuba and met authors and artists in Havana, where he stayed for two months.
Stories of Hemingway, who has worked as war reporter in Istanbul in his youth, were searched in restaurants, in the house where he stayed in Cuba, as well as the fishing town, which has also inspired his renowned novel entitled “The Old Man and the Sea”. The documentary also included Coşkun Aral’s interview with photographer Alberto Korda.
Dündar who has been jailed during editing of the documentary continued writing the script of an episode entitled “The Havana of Nazım”.
While Can Dündar’s son Ege Dündar along with Cihan Ünal and Sungun Babacan will be dubbing the documentary including three episodes, the film will be directed by Nebil Özgentürk and the music will be composed by Yeni Türküler and Zülfü Livaneli, renowned musicians.
