The character of “Driver Nebahat” played by Sezer Sezin, who started her film career in 1944, is embraced by audiences so thoroughly–and became a nickname for her for many years–that sequels were made in 1964 and 1965. Indeed, with its social references that surpass the film itself, “Driver Nebahat” has become a phrase in daily life and used to refer to women who “became mannish” in the working life. The film tells the story of Nebahat, who has to do a traditionally man’s job in order to exist in the public arena and gain her economic independence, and poses the question: should a woman “become mannish” in order to survive in a men’s world?
Driver Nebahat will be screened in commemoration of Sezer Sezin.
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.
