Cast: Pei-pei Cheng, Ben Whishaw, Andrew Leung
United Kingdom, 2014, 91’, color

English & Mandarin with Turkish subtitles

Ben Whishaw (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer) delivers a touching and nuanced performance in this affecting and intimate debut feature from writer director Hong Khaou, about finding the aspects of life which bring us together. Set in contemporary London, a Cambodian-Chinese mother is mourning the untimely death of her son when her world is suddenly disrupted by the presence of a stranger. Without a common language, the two have difficulties in trying to communicate. But through a translator they slowly piece together memories of a man they both loved and realize that while they may not share a language, they are connected in their grief. The film opened at last year’s Sundance Film Festival in January 2014.

At the Order of the Padishah

In this piece, Żmurko presents an exotic image of a harem chamber, replete with gleaming fabrics and scattered jewels, as a setting for the statuesquely beautiful body of an odalisque murdered “at the order of the padishah”.

It can be seen how Goya gradually and constantly investigated all the technical possibilities of creative engraving from etching to lithography. 

Istanbul-Paris-Istanbul: Mario Prassinos

Istanbul-Paris-Istanbul: Mario Prassinos

Mario Prassinos liked Istanbul more than the current Istanbulites of today. It is obvious that you can understand this from the article written by her daughter Catherine Prassinos in the Pera Museum's book on the artist.
