French with Turkish subtitles

This eye-opening documentary follows an experiment in a small village in the mountains of France where the town's mayor has decided to make the schoollunch menu organic, with much of the food grown locally. He argues that unless we act now to change industrial models of agricultural production that rely on petro-chemical fertilizers and insecticides, our children will be condemned to rapidly deteriorating health in the form of cancers, infertility and other illnesses linked to environmental factor. Featuring interviews with children, parents, teachers, health care workers, farmers, elected officials, scientists and researchers, """"Food Beware"""" takes a powerful look at the abuses of the food industry, the challenges and rewards of safe food production, and the practical solutions that everyone can take part in. This remarkable story of one community's crusade to save their children's health is both food for thought and a blueprint for a growing revolution.

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
