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.

Midnight Horror Stories: The Last Ferry
Galip Dursun

I remembered a game as I was waiting in the passenger lounge for the ferry to arrive just a few minutes ago. A game we used to play at home when I was young, in my country that is very far away from here, a relic from the distant past; I don’t even remember how we used to play it. The kind of game that makes me feel a thousand times lonelier than I already am among the crowd waiting to get on the ferry.

Giacometti: Early Works

Giacometti: Early Works

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development. 

Dancing on Architecture

Dancing on Architecture

I think it was Frank Zappa – though others claim it was Laurie Anderson – who said in an interview that ‘writing on music is much like dancing on architecture’.
