An article in The Guardian highlights a total of six films centred around the Gallipoli Campaign - or the Battle of Çanakkale as it is known in Turkey - either recently released or to be released in time for the Centenary of the landings in 2015.

The article suggests that the amount of films - all products of the Turkish cinema industry - to be released over the next few years may cause "battle fatigue" for audiences, but are also a sign of a "a healthy domestic market for Turkish products".
