Danis Tanović enlists a cast of non-professionals to reconstruct a harrowing personal ordeal that became a national scandal. An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker is a story of courage in the face of hardship and injustice. Struggling to make ends meet as a scrap-metal forager in the remote Roma community of Poljice, Nazif Maujic's routine becomes a desperate fight for survival when his partner Senada suffers a miscarriage. Without medical insurance or the means to pay for a life-saving septicemia procedure, Senada and Nazif are denied admittance to the local hospital. So begins a hellish 10-day odyssey pitting the couple against social prejudice and a callous bureaucracy, exposing the institutional discrimination faced by Bosnia-Herzegovina's Roma minority.

The First Nudes

The First Nudes

Men were the first nudes in Turkish painting. The majority of these paintings were academic studies executed in oil paint; they were part of the education of artists that had finally attained the opportunity to work from the live model. The gender of the models constituted an obstacle in the way of characterizing these paintings as ‘nudes’.
