World renowned writer Yaşar Kemal’s entire life from birth to death is brought on the silver screen, with his own words as well as those of his friends who have witnessed his life. Surveying the turning points of the life of the legendary writer in an epic narrative, the film draws on previously unseen archival footage, sound recordings compiled from hundreds of hours of material and thousands of pages of documents. Yaşar Kemal Efsanesi depicts with a cinematographic narrative the struggle, literature and life of the writer and his attitude in the face of events that have marked the century.
