Dear ATA-DC Members and Friends,
You are invited to a movie screening called 'İstanbul Unveiled" at the Turkish House.
ISTANBUL UNVEILED by Şerif Yenen
It is a city of mystery, a city of wonders, and a city whose history is unlike any other. It is Istanbul. Once known as Byzantium, then renamed Constantinople, Istanbul, straddling the Bosphorous in northwestern Turkey, is one of history’s most significant cities, having served as the capital of four empires. It played an important role in the advancement of Christianity—until the Ottomans took over and transformed it into an Islamic entity under caliphate rule.The city is filled with outstanding examples of architecture inspired by its various rulers and religions. Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman influences are readily apparent. Once a major stop along the Silk Road, its historic center is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. From Topkapi Palace to Hagia Sophia, and from the Chora Monastery to the Grand Bazaar, its storied past continues to captivate us.
