The first ever aeronautics film made in Yeşilçam, its box office record was not broken for four years. This film is screened for Göksel Arsoy who will receive this year’s Cinema Honorary Award.

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
