Made in 1973, Bride is the first film of Ömer Lütfi Akad’s Bride-Wedding-Blood Money trilogy depicting the immigration problem in Turkey, and holds a special place in the history of Turkish cinema. The film tells the story of a crowded family that has migrated from inner Anatolia to Istanbul in search of better living conditions, losing their values and disintegrating in face of big city life and the system that grinds people down, changes them, and makes them subservient to money and power. The efforts of this big and traditional family of adapting to life in Istanbul are accompanied by dreams of becoming rich. The film pits humane values against the ambition to become rich as it depicts the tragedy of the family, which is great, but humanity wins in the end.

Giacometti: Early Works

Giacometti: Early Works

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development.

Paris Without End (1959-1965)

In the 60s, Alberto Giacometti paid homage to Paris, the city where he lived, by drawing its streets, cafés, and more private places like his studio and the apartment of his wife, Annette. These drawings would make up his last book, Paris sans fin (Paris Without End).
