Storyline

The story takes place in a small town (called Hakkari) in Turkey at the beginning of the 70's. The time has come to bring technology into that small town. The first Television (or called Visiontele by the citizens) arrives and the chaos begins. Some people are excited and some are afraid of this new device which can show us live pictures from different places. Is it devils easy prey to catch us or is it just a feature of the modern time? Without losing time, the mayor (Altan Erkekli) of the town Hakkari tries to find some people who can help him to set up the signal receiver on the highest position of the mountain. His Team consists of one crazy electrician called Emin (Yilmaz Erdogan) and some mayor office staff members and none of them has any knowledge of TVs. These predecessors of time tried their luck :) . The Story of Viziontele consists of many Jokes which are mixed up with some traditional superstitions to show how funny the conflict between these two points can be. But also ... Written by Cagdas C.

Seventies... A small town in the Eastern parts of Turkey... A change in the lives...A sudden change... A new invention called "vizontele"(television) in the town...And a new quest for the people of the town...To operate this new invention... Yilmaz Erdogan, together with the well chosen casting gives a very good performance in reconstructing the tragic-funny events that took place in many of those small towns... The location, the shooting, the directing, the casting, the screenplay all made this the best Turkish movie ever, which in a sense was reflected in the records it broke in terms of box office... Congratulations Erdogan....
