Pera Film in collaboration with and as part of 24th LGBT+ Pride Week, is screening a series of films.
On June 28th 1969, a rebellion took place in a bar called Stonewall Inn in New York, by the homosexual and trans people against the oppression and violence they had been facing for a long time. The police who came for raid was locked in the bar, and the action and conflict lasted four days, spreading to the streets. This day which is a milestone of LGBTI+ struggle is celebrated as Pride Week all over the world. In Turkey, the LGBTI+ community wished to celebrate pride week for the first time in 1993, under the name "Sexual Liberation Week". However, because of the ban by the municipality, police custodies and international guests being deported the Pride March couldn't take place. As the movement's demands towards the prohibitions and the social support it received was strengthened, the first Istanbul Pride March took place in 2003, ten years after the beginning of Pride Week. The march that began with 20-30 people expanded and grew, multiplying each year. It is claimed that 100.000 people joined the march on İstiklal in 2013. In 2015, the 13th Pride March was unexpectedly raided by the police. However, the determined LGBTI+ movement will be crowding the streets once again in the 14th Pride March on June 26th, 2016.
This program’s screenings are free of admissions. Drop in, no reservations.

Three people sleeping side by side. On the uncomfortable seats of the stuffy airplane in the air. Three friends. I’m the friend in the window seat. The other two are a couple, Emre and Melisa. I’m alone, they are together. And another difference. I’ve only closed my eyes. They are asleep.
