The Poet

The documentary that is about an important part of Anatolian cultural heritage, the poet-singer, tells the qualities of these individuals, their relations with their masters and pupils, and their daily lives via the portrait of şık Eyyubi. The process of şık Eyyubi becoming a poet-singer in Tortum of Erzurum that he lived, his loyalty to şık Ruhani and his occupation as a shepherd that he made his living are shared with the interviews made with him and his friends, and exclusive shots. While his life that continues as a shepherd and poet-singer, and the things that he risked to become a poet-singer take us to an extraordinary journey, the folk songs that he sing alone and with his master, the poems that he read about life and the world make us question our perspective on life.
