Director: Agnieszka Zwiefka
Cast: Denisa Gabor
Poland, Germany, 2014, 80’, color
Polish, Romany with Turkish subtitles

A vivid portrayal of the life of 10-year-old Denisa, a deaf-mute Romany girl who lives for music in a temporary camp on the outskirts of Wroclaw in Poland. This multi award-winning documentary uses a highly original hybrid form to both observe the harsh realities of life as an illegal migrant in Eastern Europe, and celebrate the heartwarming gifts of childhood. Shot over the course of a year, the film documents Denisa’s blissfully naive experience of life and her stunning transformation when her favourite Bollywood music starts.

Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.
