A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is steeped in other influences: Spaghetti Westerns, 1950s juvenile delinquent movies, gearhead movies, teenage rom-coms, the Iranian New Wave. Shot in California but set in a distorted, black and white version of Iran called Bad City, director Ana Lily Amirpour draws on an eclectic assortment of influences and blends aesthetics associated with Eastern and Western filmmaking to create work that has been billed as the “first Iranian vampire Western” and hailed as a female-empowered and unique take on the vampire film.

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.

Henryk Weyssenhoff, author of landscapes, prints, and illustrations, devoted much of his creative energies to realistic vistas of Belorussia, Lithuania, and Samogitia.
