The director Joaquim Pinto has been living with HIV and VHC for nearly two decades. This video journal chronicles one year of his participation in experimental clinical studies, during which he undergoes treatments with toxic, mind- altering pharmaceutical drugs. Pinto’s reflections on memory, epidemic, and globalization are articulated in contrast to the film’s setting of a remote, rural home that the filmmaker shares with his partner. What Now? Remind Me is a tribute to love, dissent and friendships both past and present.
When regarding the paintings of Istanbul by western painters, Golden Horn has a distinctive place and value. This body of water that separates the Topkapı Palace and the Historical Peninsula, in which monumental edifices are located, from Galata, where westerners and foreign embassies dwell, is as though an interpenetrating boundary.
Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms.
