Childrens Theater Campaign: http://infoflight.publicisyorum.com/s/XNQLMWNXP1

Akbank Children’s Theater; was founded nearly four decades ago, at a time when remote towns and villages in rural Turkey had to endure considerable isolation both physically and culturally. We set out from a true story to paint a vivid picture of how the institution touched lives and broadened perspectives in the course of its long journey over the years.

The young narrator of the film represents nearly one million children all across Turkey who got to enjoy Akbank Children’s Theater shows since its founding. The film is meant as a poignant reminder that Akbank adds value to the lives of young generations.
