A little bit of “Showgirls”, a little taste of Yeşilçam cinema, and a little air of early-Almodóvar cheekiness – this should be the most fitting definition for the genuine formula of this lively made-in-Mexico melodrama. Valentina, who goes on stage at a night club, is as flamboyant as her flatmate Joana is reclusive. These two trans women’s lives change as the star performer position becomes vacant in the night club where Valentina works. Getting one step closer to the star status for which she has been waiting for years, Valentina suddenly gets confronted with a new rival: La Madonna, the new lover of the club’s merciless boss. This rivalry makes Valentina become merciless against her flatmate Joana as well. Impudently camp and possessing the spirit of punk-rock, “Lonely Stars” is a melodrama that entertains its audience non-stop with its rhythm that never slows down.

A Night at Pera Museum

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Pera Museum invites artist Benoît Hamet to reinterpret key pieces from its collections, casting a humorous eye over ‘historical’ events, both imagined and factual.

French artist Félix Ziem is one of the most original landscape painters of the 19thcentury. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
