Boston Turkish Film Festival


Broad Horizons

Broad Horizons is an entertaining and informative documentary that showcases the ancient civilizations of Anatolia, modern Turkey and its people in a visually and aurally exciting way, while following a human story of growth. The film follows the journey of a group of American teachers to Turkey in the summer of 2010. It captures their aspirations as they prepare to go on the trip, travels with them as they go beyond their textbooks and get a first-hand look at Turkey and examines the impact that exploring a foreign culture can have on the minds of educators and their students.
