Artist: Frank Smith
France, 52’, 2014
French with Turkish subtitles

Poet, writer of novels and radio documentaries, Frank Smith’s new work is the second part of a project involving a book. In March 2009, a man murdered ten people before ending his own life, on a journey from Kinston to Geneva, Alabama. Frank Smith interrogates this event by questioning the relationship between fact, narrative, image, and language. He revisits the road travelled that day using Google Earth, trying to make sense of the path of a serial killer, and combining the screening of the film with a live reading of his book.

Portrait of Martín Zapater (1797)

Martín Zapater y Clavería, born in Zaragoza on November 12th 1747, came from a family of modest merchants and was taken in to live with a well-to-do aunt, Juana Faguás, and her daughter, Joaquina de Alduy. He studied with Goya in the Escuelas Pías school in Zaragoza from 1752 to 1757 and a friendship arose between them which was to last until the death of Zapater in 1803.

Tadeusz Ajdukiewicz discovered the Orient in 1877, touring Syria, Egypt, Turkey, and the Crimea with Władysław Branicki. This experience made a profound impression on him, and he was to continuously revisit Eastern themes in his works for the rest of his life.
