Chilla focuses on a family living in rural Uzbekistan, surrounded in isolation by a striking, mountainous terrain. In this matriarchal home, men are inexplicably removed. Each of the four women portrayed find themselves at turning points–of one sort or another–in their lives. Director Ismailova offers a contemplative view into an extraordinarily intimate female world. Her film is a portrait of four individuals closely tied to one another, and the solitary process by which each builds their own identity. It is a testament to the human will towards self-determination, told through carefully composed, sweeping imagery.

Paris Without End (1959-1965)

In the 60s, Alberto Giacometti paid homage to Paris, the city where he lived, by drawing its streets, cafés, and more private places like his studio and the apartment of his wife, Annette. These drawings would make up his last book, Paris sans fin (Paris Without End).

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.
