Como resposta a esse alheamento a realizadora Ayce Kartal criou a animação, “Backward Run" (2013) para dar expressão ao sucedido e chamar à atenção sobre a necessidade de uma imprensa livre. O filme é curto, mas suficientemente claro e directo para passar a ideia central, conseguindo gerar o contraste de atmosferas e sentires que se viveram por esses dias na Turquia. Numa entrevista ao site Occupy Kartal explica o momento em que lhe ocorreu a ideia de criar o filme,
"Violence has been started! Everything became serious. At that moment the main media organs were in silence and showing classic daily programs on TV and the newspapers were writing mark. Thousands of people have been wounded, have become permanently disabled and some were killed but we couldn't get any news from the Turkish press. We watched all the live news from the webcasts of TV channels from Norway, Germany and France.”
“Our elderly, who don't use the Internet, didn't get what was happening in their own country. 'Why are these people shouting? Why are all the streets in chili smoke and what is this fire?' they were wondering. It was very sorrowful," she said. "One day on the street an old guy stopped me and asked, 'What is this? Did we get the World Cup?'"
