The director returns to her motherland years after the Iran Islamic Revolution only to observe in surprise that the social injustices that existed before the revolution increased despite the regimes claims of justice, and drugs consuming and the gap between the classes expanded. The documentary is about two women who work as sex workers in order to raise their children, in a country governed by hard religious rules.

The exhibition Look at Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection examines portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Through the exhibition we will be sharing about the artists and sections in Look At Me!.
Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms.
