Pera Film is celebrating International Women’s Day! The short animation program Turbulent Times & Familiar Places presented in collaboration with Tricky Women Festival and Österreichisches Kulturforum Istanbul embraces women directors. Tricky Women is an international festival based in Vienna and the world‘s first and only festival dedicated exclusively to animated films made by women. The annual festival takes place every year around the International Women‘s Day.
Pera Museum’s Tricky Women selection combines current positions of Austrian femaleartists in animation film and gives an insight into the many techniques and work processes, with which the filmmakers shift the attention to relevant and unprecedented topics: the question where and why you feel at home (HomeStatements), what it is like to arrive in a new city where interpersonal relationships first have to be established (Shut up Moon) and mystical city observations in reference to discarded and newly picked up things (Taipei Recyclers). The greed with which both social and ecological consciousness is shifted from commonality to singularity (Princess Disaster Movie and YachaY). Biographical details (Garten & Schnaps), effects of boredom and opportunities (or lack of) on the periphery (Ginny) and how a woman takes life into her own hands (Two Melons - Birth of an Artist). The unpredictability and predictability of love around the globe and in the neighborhood (Follow You and Der verliebte Koch). The program further includes films that exploit reduced forms using excessive sound (Three Suns) and challenge the mechanisms of cinema and its perception (Machine).
This program’s screenings are free of admissions.
Drop in, no reservations.

Take a look at this program's film list!
French artist Félix Ziem is one of the most original landscape painters of the 19thcentury. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
Henryk Weyssenhoff, author of landscapes, prints, and illustrations, devoted much of his creative energies to realistic vistas of Belorussia, Lithuania, and Samogitia. A descendant of an ancient noble family which moved east to the newly Polonised Inflanty in the 17th century, the young Henryk was raised to cherish Polish national traditions.
Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
