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.
