This paper illustrates which themes were used to present terror problem in the movie through the discourse and semiotic analysis and the effects of that the movie was made in Diyarbakir are examined. As the results of the analysis, in the movie there is a hegemonic conspiracy discourse that the terror incidents in Turkey have been caused by foreign countries; the movie focuses on the external links of terror problem and their collaborators in the country,; the economic, social and political problems were mentioned only implicitly, hence the problem is isolated from its context. Additionally, it is discovered that Diyarbakir enhanced the visual and esthetical features of the movie with historical and social features, especially the folkloric songs in Kurdish and Turkish strengthen the emotional aspect of the movie as well as the brotherhood messages among the people.
