The Fog: There’s something in the fog!

March 6, 2020

The series of screenings and talks collaboratively organized by Pera Film and Altyazı Cinema Association, curated by Yeşim Tabak, is named after the crucial line in John Carpenter’s supernatural suspense The FogThere’s something in the fog!”

This event is inspired by the zeitgeist- uncertainty, which leads to a state of anxiously waiting for something to happen. The unavoidable curiosity and the need to know what there is in the ‘Fog’ form a relevant basis for the talks that will probe into the classics in the history of cinema in conjunction with the nature of film analyzing exercises, which aim to bring out the hidden. Furthermore, as an aesthetic, narrative or symbolic visual element that filmmakers often resort to the ‘fog’ offers an open-ended area for new discoveries in cultural discourse. 

Scheduled on the first Friday of every month and composed of six films that approach the same concept from a different angle, each screening in this series will be followed by a conversation of cinema writers and artists, who have a special connection with the artistic attitude of that particular movie. 

Altyazı Sinema Derneği
Founded in 2001 by a group of students in Boğaziçi University, Altyazı is a cinema magazine published totally independently, without any affiliation to any media group. This very team founded Altyazı Cinema Association in March 2019, which has become the house for their work that covers a broad range of activities including publishing, screenings, interviews, cinema seminars and all other fields that contribute to cinema culture. 

Screening tickets are 10 TL (reduced museum admission). Tickets are available at Biletix. As per legal regulations, all our screenings are restricted to persons over 18 years of age, unless stated otherwise.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Pera Museum invites artist Benoît Hamet to reinterpret key pieces from its collections, casting a humorous eye over ‘historical’ events, both imagined and factual.

Paris Without End (1959-1965)

In the 60s, Alberto Giacometti paid homage to Paris, the city where he lived, by drawing its streets, cafés, and more private places like his studio and the apartment of his wife, Annette. These drawings would make up his last book, Paris sans fin (Paris Without End).
