I love daybreak - Bedrettin Cömert's legacy

Kemal Cömert's documentary on Bedrettin Cömert's legacy

About the project

CHE CROWDFUNDING HAS ENDED AND THANKS TO YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS THE PROJECT REACHED 100% OF THE BUDGET!

THANKS TO ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS! YOU WILL BE CONSTANTLY UPDATED! 

Who was Bedrettin Cömert?

The journey of a son who tragically lost his father at the age of 5.

36 years after the tragic event, a son’s need to know more, to learn about his father’s legacy, to better understand himself and his past.

Bedrettin Cömert was professor at Ankara’s Hacettepe University. He finished his studies in Rome, marrying a woman of Italian nationality.

"Martyr of democracy", this is how he has recently been defined, leaving studies, books and philosophy to the intellectual world.

Still today he lives on as a symbol through the protest of Turkish students against the fascist policies of the heads of the academic community; his opus used as reference texts and university material.

His influence is still felt. And his aura has also touched me, Kemal Cömert, younger son who has no memory of him, but who inevitably is the result of what he was and what he has left.

This documentary is a journey into this man’s life through the stories, the information and the interviews with people who knew him personally or indirectly, people who have studied his books or have heard of him from friends and relatives, to come to understand “Bedrettin”, what he stood for and what he represents today in the eyes of the world, in my heart and in my soul.

The objective is to disseminate the documentary to remember him as researcher of the arts, aesthetician, poet, martyr of democracy, but also as human being and father.

and

To remind the world that terrorism kills people but not ideas, which survive through the years.
