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.

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards.

Istanbul’s Seaside Leisure: Nostalgia from Sea Baths to Beaches exhibition brought together photographs, magazines, comics, objects, and books from various private and institutional collections, and told a nostalgic story while also addressing the change and socialization of the norms of how Istanbulites used their free time. Istanbul’s Seaside Leisure was a documentary testament of the radical transformations in the Republic’s lifestyle.
