Two mermaids came ashore at a night club in Warsaw. Polish director Agnieszka Smoczynska says the film echoes a youth spent in her mother’s nightclub, where she had her “first shot of vodka, first cigarette, first sexual disappointment, and first important feeling for a boy.’ The film takes on H ans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid story into another realm!

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. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
