Pera Film presents a retrospective selection of the films of Tomer Heymann, a documentary producer and director whose films focus exclusively on the human in their search for truth. The program Chosen Families: Tomer Heymann focuses on the director’s six documentary films that explore with an honest and sensitive perspective the concept of family, the ones we are born in and the ones we choose, and the feelings that arise from being together.
The screening to be held at 24 November will be followed by a talk with Tomer Heymann, moderated by film critic Nil Kural.
The talk will be in English with simultaneous Turkish translation. Free admissions. Limited space, drop in, no reservations.

He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there. Below it was an old wooden rail, worn out in some places. That was his place. There was another seat for his lawyer. At the back, about 20 or 30 chairs were stowed out for the non-existent crowd.
