All About My Mother conjures a rich, kaleidoscopic universe of unforgettable women. Brimming with references to classic melodramas, including All About Eve, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Cassavetes’ Opening Night, it follows the sojourn of nurse Manuela (Cecilia Roth) who, following the tragic death of her teenage son, travels from Madrid to Barcelona, where she joins a community of dispossessed women, including a troubled actress (Marisa Paredes), an outspoken sex worker (Antonia San Juan), and a pregnant, HIV-positive nun (Penélope Cruz). This freewheeling fantasia is a generous, openhearted tribute to female friendship and resilience.
Free admissions. Drop in, no reservations.
Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
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.
