The "Son of Crimea: Struggle of a People" was filmed in Turkey, Ukraine, Russian Federation, Uzbekistan, Belgium and the United States. It incorporates interviews with hundreds of eye-witnesses or survivors of the deportation of Crimean Tatar people, politicians and experts. The documentary also includes documents from former USSR archives and other sources as well as thousands of photographs from private and public collections.
The documentary which is divided into 9 parts, and lasts 270 minutes, tells the story of Crimean Tatars' long and hard process of returning to Crimea after the deportation of 1944, when all the Crimean Tatar population, as well as ethnic Greeks, Bulgarians, Germans were accused of collaboration with Nazi forces and were deported en masse to Central Asia.
Mustafa Jemilev was merely six months old at the time of the deportation. At a young age, he came into contact with nationalist movement activists and devoted his life to this ideal.
A Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Jemilev became a symbol of Crimean Tatar struggle for their rights. He served six prison terms, spending over 15 years in Soviet prison, and survived the longest ever hunger strike in the history of human rights.
