i'm not afraid of anything

June 28 - July 10, 2024

Pera Film presents the Pride Month program i'm not afraid of anything, emphasizing the importance of individual identities and the richness of living beyond norms.

i'm not afraid of anything, which follows the stories of characters progressing fearlessly on their unique journeys, brings together two cult films that have become iconic with their inspiring stories, unforgettable music, mesmerizing stage performances, and dazzling costumes and makeup, connecting queer culture with mainstream cinema for a wider audience. 

The program, held in the Pera Museum Auditorium from June 28 to July 10, features The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert celebrating its 30th anniversary. This film follows three drag queens' colorful and entertaining adventures in the Australian desert. Meanwhile, John Cameron Mitchell's Hedwig and the Angry Inch portrays the compelling journey of Hedwig, who emigrates from Germany to the USA with dreams of becoming a rock star during the fall of the Berlin Wall. 

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 wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.
