Stepping In, Stepping Out

January 11 - January 24 2021

Pera Film presents Pera Museum's Miniature 2.0: Miniature in Contemporary Art exhibition themed selection online. 

The Miniature 2.0: Miniature in Contemporary Art exhibition is a collection of works that take miniature as a point of departure, showcasing different approaches to miniature and the principles they have in common. What the artists in the exhibition have in common is the fact that they look at the world through the lens of miniatures. The program titled Stepping In, Stepping Out features three films that trace the reflection of the subjects the artists in the exhibition address through miniature, and that try to offer both an insider’s and an outsider’s view on their stories.

Taking place between January 11 - 24, the program includes Her First, a film interlaced with many questions–sometimes replied and sometimes left afloat–that tells the story of being a woman, a working woman, a woman filmmaker in Turkish cinema, told by 14 female directors; Ali Kemal Çınar’s second feature film titled Hidden, which tells the story of a young man who finds out that he will turn into a woman when he turns 30; and the award-winning documentary Married to the Camera, which offers a direct, truth-driven account of Esra Erol’s famous TV show with striking behind the scenes footage as well as actual footage from the show.

The films will be streamed at peramuseum.org between January 11 - 24, and only be accessible to online audiences in Turkey.

Having penetrated the Balkans in the fourteenth century, conquered Constantinople in the fifteenth, and reached the gates of Vienna in the sixteenth, the Ottoman Empire long struck fear into European hearts.

In the works of western painters, we encounter mosques as the primary architectural elements that reflect the identity of the city of Istanbul. Often we can recognize the depicted landscape as Istanbul simply from the mosques.
