How did a group of isolated farmers, clueless about politics, manage to win a fight against the French government's decision to extend a military camp over their land? Deep in the French countryside, 103 families made an oath to unite and defend their land. As a result, this small area became the birthplace of the anti-globalization movement in France. Yet they did not use weapons to defend themselves, only tractors and sheep. This documentary focuses on the inhabitants' 10-year long struggle for justice and freedom.
The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
