Special Screening: Censor

August 6 - 7, 2022

Pera Film presents Censor, a special screening parallel to the exhibition, And Now the Good News opened in April at Pera Museum.

Taking the newspaper as an intellectual starting point, And Now the Good News focuses on the relationship between text and news, the ways in which the invention of photography shaped society, and the powerful effect totalitarian systems have on mass media. Besides that, set in the 1980s, at a time when the media's exaggerated debate about the impact of violent videos on society was at its height, Censor tells the story of Enid as she tries to dissolve the line between fiction and reality.

Praised by Heavyhorror.com with the words "surreal and striking as well as strangely disturbing" and drawing attention with its innovative language, Censor is at Pera Film on 6 and 7 August!

Free admissions. Drop in, no reservations. As per legal regulations, all our screenings are restricted to persons over 18 years of age, unless stated otherwise.

Modernity Building the Modern / Reshaping the Modern

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
