Turkey, 2012, 89', color, Turkish with English subtitles
 
Evin Demirhan (15) - a petite Kurdish teenager and Turkish champion - wrestles to support her family of 13 in a city where violent conflict rages, leaders protect rapists and family honor keeps females at home. In the world championships, she is one fight away from a future she can call her own. Unknown to officials or the public, one in four female athletes in Turkey choose boxing, wrestling or martial arts. More and more girls from poor, religious families are quietly rejecting oppressive fates by literally fighting for university spots that lead to jobs. This story belongs to one girl driven by these possibilities.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

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.
