Blind, is a complex, humorous, and original drama that follows a woman writer who retreats to the safety of her home, having recently lost her sight. But soon her fears take over and she holds on to reality not to lose her mind. Blind is an original film with a surreal atmosphere, sparse dialogue and humour, not just on seeing and blindness but also on solitude and writing. “How does one show blindness on film? The most obvious would be to let the screen go black, to let the viewers orientate themselves with sound. (...) For me, it was often about limiting the visual input by isolating a detail or holding an image longer. This is the key to the film’s form and style for me. And blindness, paradoxically enough is in and of itself, very filmic; it contains the most fundamental aspects of film: to see and be seen, light and dark…” – Eskil Vogt

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.
