USA, 88’, 2003

"This self-portrait of an artist offers concrete support for the idea... that art can heal some of the wounds that life inflicts." —A.O. Scott, The New York Times
Still unlike anything before or since, Jonathan Caouette’s mesmerizing, twenty-years-in-the-making documentary-essay is an ultra-personal mélange of 8mm home movies, phone messages, reenactments, and head-spinning surreal freakouts documenting his tumultuous coming of age with a mentally ill mother. Frequently devastating, yet shot through with love for the troubled woman at its center, Tarnation remains “a remarkable film, immediate, urgent, angry, poetic, and stubbornly hopeful” (Roger Ebert).
Martín Zapater y Clavería, born in Zaragoza on November 12th 1747, came from a family of modest merchants and was taken in to live with a well-to-do aunt, Juana Faguás, and her daughter, Joaquina de Alduy. He studied with Goya in the Escuelas Pías school in Zaragoza from 1752 to 1757 and a friendship arose between them which was to last until the death of Zapater in 1803.
Berggren acquires the techniques of photography in Berlin and holds different jobs in various European cities before arriving in İstanbul. Initially en route to Marseille, he disembarks from his ship in 1866 and settles in İstanbul, where he is to spend the rest of his life.
