One of the films shot by Muhsin Ertugrul in VUFKU studios in Soviet Russia, Tamilla will meet audiences after 92 years. One of the pioneers of cinema in Turkey, Muhsin Ertugrul travelled to the Soviet Russia in 1925 and got actively involved in filmmaking. He worked in the scriptwriting department in Goskino in Moscow until 1926, when he received a warm invitation from VUFKU studios in Odessa to work as a film director. Tamilla tells the story of a young woman, who is forced by her father to marry a rich merchant in exchange for money. When the merchant leaves for a long journey, the father immediately takes steps to marry her daughter this time to a prince. However, his plans never materialise when the merchant returns unexpectedly early from his trip. Tamilla can also be placed within the context of a rising interest in the rural tales of poverty and oppression. It is one of the very few films by Ertugrul that survived.
