When Krisha walks in to the family house for a Thanksgiving dinner, the atmosphere is tense despite the warm greetings. Krisha is also anxious, almost frightened. She has obviously been absent from family gatherings for a while, but upon revealing her sobriety, has been given a second chance. In Krisha, Trey Edward Shults brings together his immediate family and treats addiction –always an elephant in the room, he says– with audacity and heartbreaking humor. With inspired camerawork, sound design, editing, and natural acting, Krisha introduces us to a family of no nonsense storytellers, telling a very intimate story close to home.

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.

He didn’t expect this from me. And I hadn’t expected that we would decide to get married that day, at that moment. Everything happened all of a sudden, but exactly like it was supposed to happen in our day. We thought of the idea of marriage simultaneously, we smiled simultaneously, blinking and opening our eyes in unison.

Paris Without End (1959-1965)

In the 60s, Alberto Giacometti paid homage to Paris, the city where he lived, by drawing its streets, cafés, and more private places like his studio and the apartment of his wife, Annette. These drawings would make up his last book, Paris sans fin (Paris Without End).
