everything is film

May 15 - June 1, 2024

Pera Film presents everything is film program, in collaboration with DFF – Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum, one of the world's leading film heritage institutions. 

Pera Film highlights the importance of interinstitutional cultural exchange and cinema heritage through its new collaboration with DFF, specially arranged for International Museum Day. Located in Frankfurt, Germany, DFF, founded in 1949, carries out its mission to preserve and share film culture with the world through its museum, cinema, film archive, festivals, digital platforms, research and digitization projects, and education programs. The institute's film archive hosts classics and contemporary examples of German cinema and significant works from world cinema, ranging from documentaries shedding light on cinema history to experimental films, from classics to innovative works.

The program, named after DFF's motto (Everything is film, and film is everything), curated by institute curators and prepared with films selected from the DFF collection. features four films from different periods of German cinema. The program enables viewers to watch Es (1966), which traces existential angst and societal disillusionment; Mädchen in Uniform (1931), a groundbreaking story of forbidden love and rebellion within the confines of a strict boarding school; Brand in der Oper (1930), a visually stunning reflection of humanity's chaos and tragedy through an opera house; and Weak Spot (1975), a gripping thriller following complex webs of crime and deception.

Film screenings within this program are accessible with a discounted museum entrance ticket. Tickets can be purchased from Biletix or the reception of Pera Museum. Per legal regulations, all screenings are restricted to persons over 18 years of age unless stated otherwise.

“The portrait tells us that there is an inner and an outer dimension of the human condition; it provides—or should provide—information about both the physical and psychological character of an individual.”

Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.

José Sancho does not conceal the voluptuousness of his female torsos; he highlights it. These torsos are symmetrical from front, but on the other hand, from the side, the juxtaposition of concave and convex forms creates dynamism.
