Sarikecilis are the last representatives in Anatolia of the centuries-old tradition of nomadism. Making their way to sea level in winter, and to the highlands in summer, they spend seven months of the year in transit, living off of the goats they keep.
In Last Nomads in Anatolia, Yüksel Aksu handles the delicate tapestry of nomadic tradition with an anthropologist’s curiosity. Charting the seasonal migrations of Sarıkeçililer, this poignant documentary creates a rich tableau of Anatolian culture caught in the inexorable march of time.
