Italy, 120’, 1946, black & white

Italian with Turkish subtitles

A landmark of neorealism, Paisan is the first film to earn Alfred Hayes an Academy Award nomination, and the second entry in Rossellini’s War Trilogy (after Rome, Open City). In six episodes (each by a different writer, including one by Federico Fellini), it recounts the Allied invasion of Italy during World War II. The final sequence—depicting a battle in the Po Valley between the Germans and Italian Resistance—is a hair-raising, nearly wordless tour-de-force of suspense.

Félix Ziem (1821-1911) A nomadic, unclassifiable, and eccentric artist

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.
