Argentina
Stories from Latin America

December 18 - 28, 2013

Pera Film continues its Latin American journey with selected recent films from Argentina. Presented in collaboration with the Consulate General of Argentina in İstanbul, the selected four films produced from the last few years exemplify the ingrained rich film culture.

The cinema of Argentina, one of the most captivating and established cinemas of Latin America, boasts a long and productive history, a socially conscious, politically minded, engaging character and a constantly evolving nature. More recently, the recession at the beginning of the 21st century gave birth to novel and significant cinematic motivation, which in fact continued in the footsteps of the art-house wave that began in the 1990s with directors such as Lisandro Alonso, Lucrecia Martel, Martin Rejtman, and Pablo Trapero. Today, more than a decade later, the newest generation of Argentine filmmakers emerges.

From two portraits of children…

The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.

The second part of exhibition illustrates Alberto Giacometti’s relations with Post-Cubist artists and the Surrealist movement between 1922 and 1935, one of the important sculptures series he created during his first years in Paris, and the critical role he played in the art scene of the period.
