This debut feature by the Danish filmmaker tells the story of Marie who lives in a small fishing town in Denmark with her invalid mother and a father. She’s attractive, and soon experiences all the sexism and restrictions of small-town morality. Then, the growing pains of a healthy, spirited young girl start taking a scary physical turn. We witness one of the most graceful transformations into a werewolf - and Marie embraces her new identity. We start seeing her mother’s unspecified illness in a new light, and the measures taken by her protective father, and the nature of violence and aggression in quiet, religious societies.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
