Halima’s Path tells the tragic but inspiring story of a good-natured woman Halima who tries, without success, to identify the remains of her son who was killed in the Bosnian War and buried in one of the many mass graves. She refuses to give blood for DNA analysis, hiding the fact that her son was secretly adopted and is not her biological son. She realizes that the only solution to finally find her son’s remains is to track down his biological mother who has not been seen for more than 20 years. But soon after finding her, a sequence of tragic events spirals out of control, with unexpected results.

When regarding the paintings of Istanbul by western painters, Golden Horn has a distinctive place and value. This body of water that separates the Topkapı Palace and the Historical Peninsula, in which monumental edifices are located, from Galata, where westerners and foreign embassies dwell, is as though an interpenetrating boundary.

José Sancho does not conceal the voluptuousness of his female torsos; he highlights it. These torsos are symmetrical from front, but on the other hand, from the side, the juxtaposition of concave and convex forms creates dynamism.
