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!

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.

“A nameless Egyptian fresco, an African idol or a vase from Crete: we should behold Pirosmani’s art among them. Only this way it is possible to conceive it genuinely … …You see Pirosmani – you believe in Georgia”.
