On 24th of May, 2013 the successful premiere of the new documentary ‘Kaptan June’ by Barbara Trottnow took place in Dalyan to a packed house. The German filmmaker has known “Kaptan June” for 22 years. Last year she did several long interviews with June and created a personal portrait describing June’s great commitment and at the same time telling the special story of Iztuzu beach. There is some nice footage from June’s 90th birthday.
Previously unknown photos, some from the abandoned excavation of the hotel prevented by June in the eighties, enrich the film.
