“A Very Long Journey of Freedom” tells the story of a train journey based on human rights in Turkey which was jointly organised by Hurriyet newspaper and the Turkish Railways Administration. 70 hours of filming was done to cover this amazing train journey in over 45 days. Workshops of the Amnesty International, Akbank Childrens Theatre performances and many other activities presented the Turkish people of Anatolia what basic principles of human rights are as well as what rights they possess as citizens.
This interesting human rights journey on rails supplies a great insight into social, political and economic problems of Turkey in 48 minutes.
