Often mentioned alongside Ingmar Bergman, master director Roy Andersson completes his “living” trilogy following Songs from the Second Floor (2000) and You, the Living (2007). The film follows two world-weary travelling salesmen–like modern times’ Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, they provide an insight into a chaotic world of the present, past and future. At once absurd, harsh, surreal, raging, darkly comic, and disturbing, A Pigeon... reminds us of the grandeur of life, the vulnerability of man and its impending doom, like a pigeon perched on a branch.

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
