Danish documentary director Jannik Splidsboel, whose documentary “How Are You” was screened in the first year of Pink Life QueerFest, turns his camera this time on Tulsa, Oklahoma which hosts one of the most religious communities in the US. The number of churches in Tulsa, a city with a population of around 400 thousand, is more than 4 thousand whereas there is only one center in the city that supports LGBT youth. Having premiered in Berlinale, “Misfits” follows the lives of three youngsters -one gay, one lesbian, and one trans- visiting this center in Tulsa. There are those among them who face discrimination as well as those who are supported by their families. This touching documentary emphasizes the importance of the victories and losses that these LGBT youth, who struggle to gain recognition within the society, experience vis-à-vis their families in the first place.

Based on similar examples by the European painters in various collections, this work is one of the portraits of Mihrimah Sultan, who was depicted rather often in the 16th century.

“The portrait tells us that there is an inner and an outer dimension of the human condition; it provides—or should provide—information about both the physical and psychological character of an individual.”

The Captive Sultan

The war fought by the Greeks to shake off the Turkish yoke was closely observed around Europe and, this being the era of romanticism, the events taking place around Greece between 1821 and 1832 became a symbol for national liberation struggle.
