Dizis, Turkish films, Turkish daily series, with their deep emotional stories bring people together and create international communities through social media.

This review is a collaboration between two women who “met” through one such community of the Turkish daily series Kan Çiçekleri, otherwise known as Blood Flowers, produced by Sevda Kaygısız leading a team of at least 8 skilled writers, mostly women, on Kanal 7, a nationwide Islamic TV Channel.

Penned by Dr. Patti Feuereisen & Vinita Temple ~ a practicing psychologist and a human rights lawyer ~ their analytical depth in the understanding of the culture and human dynamics is artful.
