Hand of Another: All the Cities of the North

April 18, 2019

Hand of Another focuses on films that question the gap between people in a society where distances close and opportunities grow.

Bringing together a collection of films that challenge the norms of conventional cinema through innovative expression, Hand of Another presents works of contemporary cinema that have not been released in Turkey while also reintroducing obscure older films to a new audience. A talk will be held after each screening. Hand of Another film screening series is presented by Pera Film in partnership with Fol.

This program’s screenings and events are free of admissions. Drop in, no reservations. As per legal regulations, all our screenings are restricted to persons over 18 years of age, unless stated otherwise.

What is Fol?
Fol is an Istanbul-based film society that attaches importance to and aims to share the alternative experiences offered by film and video. Established in 2015 by Burak Çevik, Fol continues its film screenings in various locations across Istanbul.
