Pera Film launched Hand of Another in March, a new series of screening held in cooperation with Fol. Hand of Another focuses on films that question the gap between people in a society where distances close and opportunities grow.

In All the Cities of the North, Dane Komljen explores abandoned places and human relationships therein, the latter based on silence rather than speech. Isolated spaces savoring of a little utopia are filled with human relations and what humans do. Spaces gradually build a memory. Wandering around those spaces, Komljen also opens a window into various forms of human sociality brought to life there. Ferda Keskin will give a speech exploring the aspects of the film following the screening.
