Pera Film is presenting a special screening parallel to the video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the lost of weight of the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection.
About the film
Marie likes everything to be measurable. But how is happiness measured? How do you know how much weight a life weighs? A film about the quirks of being human from Norway's extraordinary comedy master Bent Hamer.
Obsessed with all that is physically measurable, Marie (Ane Dahl Torp) is a scientist leading a ‘measured’ life in all matters personal and professional. She works with her equally fanatical father Ernst at Norway’s institute of weights and measures. Things begin to change when Ernst suffers a heart attack and Marie has to take his place at an international calibration conference in Paris, a journey that eventually becomes a poignant one of selfdiscovery. There, she meets the warm and philosophical Pi, whose offbeat musings challenge Marie to think about the weight and value she places on her own happiness. Master of the poetic comedy, writer-director Bent Hamer is on top form here as he uses a light touch to explore the grey area between science and feelings, human beings and our need for each other.

The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
