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.

Following the opening of his studio, “El Chark Societe Photographic,” on Beyoğlu’s Postacılar Caddesi in 1857, the Levantine-descent Pascal Sébah moves to yet another studio next to the Russian Embassy in 1860 with a Frenchman named A. Laroche, who, apart from having worked in Paris previously, is also quite familiar with photographic techniques.
