In the Twilight of White Nights

16 - June 28, 2017

Pera Film is inviting you to the longest days and white nights! The summer solstice is approaching and the number of minutes of daylight is rapidly increasing. The program In the Twilight of White Nights, a selection of Nordic summer films, gets its name from the lyrics by Nordic pop-star Oh Land. The sun almost never sets in these films. Bright summer nights bring unending summer parties, but at times insomnia and depression tag along. Long summer days can create new beginnings for people; families come together, teenagers fall in love and nature can take over!

Come join us and let’s experience the sun of Nordic cinema together!

Postcard Nudes

Postcard Nudes

The various states of viewing nudity entered the Ottoman world on postcards before paintings. These postcards appeared in the 1890s, and became widespread in the 1910s, following the proclamation of the Second Constitutional Monarchy, traveling from hand to hand, city to city. 

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico. Exactly 47 years from now, before she died in the same city and her beloved Mexico, many things would happen; she’d meet Diego Rivera, become a world-renowned artist, and allow many of her fans to dress like her on Halloween. 

Baby King

1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
