The Robinson of Manhattan Island

"Mimaroğlu: The Robinson of Manhattan Island" is the story of two free spirits: legendary electronic music composer İlhan Mimaroğlu and his vibrant wife Güngör who migrated to the USA from Turkey in early 1960s. Using the couple’s personal archives, the documentary captures the career of İlhan as an edgy artist, and the power of their life-long companionship which started off amidst a family drama.  In a multi-layered structure, the film talks about immigration, music, love and disappointment.
