The Beaten Track

The Beaten Track

January 31 - February 26, 2023

Within the scope of the exhibition Istanbuls Today, which opened at Pera Museum in December, the program includes nine film examples from experimental, documentary and fiction genres. The word “uğrak” (the beaten track), which is thought to originate from the Turkish-Mongolian language family, means to stop by and go. The word uğrak, transformed over the years to mean to make a temporary stop and to go frequently, allows us to show the films that transform Istanbul into a place of a haunt.
