Occupy: The Movie provides a sensational focus on the social movement that set up shop at Wall Street’s front door. Occupy succeeded in captivating the collective consciousness and providing hope for positive change, but its visibility vanished as quickly as it appeared, leaving questions of its effectiveness in its wake. Tackling the complexity of how the movement manifested and providing cogent context to what caused its genesis, Corey Ogilvie presents a clear and compelling account of the Zuccotti Park settlement without getting lost in empty slogans, violent conflicts or proselytizing activists. Featuring key interviews with Kalle Lasn (Adbusters), philosopher Cornel West, journalist Chris Hedges and leading organizers from the Occupy Wall Street movement, Occupy: The Movie isn’t propaganda for the cause, but an expert analysis of one of the biggest American social movements since the civil rights era.

From two portraits of children…

The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
