Director Kai Alexander adopts an entertaining approach towards road film, a popular subgenre of American cinema, with his first feature film. The film features Alma S. Grey, who is both the scriptwriter and the protagonist of the film, as Jenni, a young woman who has lived all her life with the hope that she can run into her father, whom she hasn’t seen since she was a little child, again someday and who has been barred from adult life upon being ostracized continuously by those around her and getting more and more introverted. After an unsuccessful suicide attempt Jenni meets Sam, who is her exact opposite: extroverted, rebellious, furious… This strange couple sets out on a trip to Los Angeles to find Jenni’s father, and the two discover themselves during the trip which happens to be full of surprises. “Broken Gardenias” has proven to be a black comedy that never forgets about humor even when it touches upon the biggest traumas and that has won a great deal of recognition at queer festivals throughout the year.
The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
Following the opening of his studio, “El Chark Societe Photographic,” on Beyoğlu’s Postacılar Caddesi in 1857, the Levantine-descent Pascal Sébah moves to yet another studio next to the Russian Embassy in 1860 with a Frenchman named A. Laroche, who, apart from having worked in Paris previously, is also quite familiar with photographic techniques.
