'The Network: Darkside of Gulenists', which premiered at the Helen Mills Event Space and Theater in Manhattan, was created by the Turkish American National Steering Committee (TASC) in conjunction with Turkish international news channel TRT World within the scope of a project run by the Directorate of Communications of the Turkish Presidency.

The documentary, which was shown with Turkish and English subtitles, will also be screened on Sunday in Paterson, New Jersey, which has a large population of Turks.

FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup, which martyred 251 people and injured nearly 2,200 others.
