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 Fog: There’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.
