Directors: Su Baloğlu, Merve Bozcu
Turkey, 2017, 80’, color, Turkish with English subtitles
 

How does one make a movie? Where to start? Does the director have to know everything? Are men better at technique? Why does my crew pay more attention to the director of photography? What the heck is a “set girl”? Is there such thing called the “female gaze”? Working with two female co-directors? Hell no! Is my assistant spreading rumors that I’m not a good director on the set? Is working with your husband on the same set, hardest thing ever? Two recent film school graduates Merve and Su decide to give up their careers in academia to make a film that seeks for answers to these questions. They shot themselves in this journey to document the crucial points of filmmaking. Interlaced with many questions–sometimes replied and sometimes left afloat–Her First tells the story of being a woman, a working woman, a woman filmmaker in Turkish cinema, told by 14 female directors.

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.
