Here's one opinion from a young Turkish lady in her 20's. Someone commenting on the project's Facebook Fan Page had mentioned that he'd like to hear what the locals thought about our documentary project.
"I think the project is great because Turkey's old cultures are close to being forgotten and there are very few young people who find them important. If it goes like you say, children with be consumed with city-life and rarely find time for the way things used to be. BUT, I hope this documentary will give them a good message and be effective at what it's trying to accomplish."
I (Mario), too, wish that my grandfather had passed on more things about Italian culture & our specific Italian family than he did. He was consumed with the new life in America (& hard work). I don't blame him for pressing forward. But in hindsight, a lot more could have been passed on.
