“An insight one has gained should be tied to a place in this world, a stay, a sojourn. A little bit of world, some smell, form and colour, should be included. This makes insights tangible. Because it should be things, that have conveyed the insight. Place, time - should always be there. Truth is temporal and spatial.

The film can’t be speaker, reciter; it’d rather be expression and inspiration to get to an opening, to the opening of one’s ears.” – Merlyn Solakhan, Martin Manz

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
