In its new program, Pera Film offers an insight to the era explored in the exhibition Constructing A Dream on view at Pera Museum, inviting the audience to a journey through Albanian cinema. The program titled The Builders of Happiness features three films shot in Albania in recent years, with a special focus on Albanian social realism. The films tell the stories of characters who strive to build a new beginning, a happy and ideal world in their own lives.
Running from October 23rd to November 14th, the program includes Bota, which impeccably evokes the atmosphere of a place where the past encroaches upon individuals' life, with a period score and enthralling long shots; Babai, filmed entirely from the perspective of a child and critically acclaimed for its exploration of the migration theme and the complicated bond between a father and a son in a problematic situation; and Open Door, a road movie which forges an extraordinary narration around the themes of sisterhood and patriarchal family traditions, and had its world premiere in the competition program of last year's Sarajevo Film Festival.
Screening tickets are 10 TL (reduced museum admission). Tickets are available at Biletix. As per legal regulations, all our screenings are restricted to persons over 18 years of age, unless stated otherwise.

Pera Museum, in collaboration with Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), is one of the main venues for this year’s 15th Istanbul Biennial from 16 September to 12 November 2017. Through the biennial, we will be sharing detailed information about the artists and the artworks.
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.
