What Now? Remind Me

Director: Joaquim Pinto
Portugal, 2013, 164’, color
Portuguese with Turkish and English subtitles

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.

The First Nudes

The First Nudes

Men were the first nudes in Turkish painting. The majority of these paintings were academic studies executed in oil paint; they were part of the education of artists that had finally attained the opportunity to work from the live model. The gender of the models constituted an obstacle in the way of characterizing these paintings as ‘nudes’.
