Our partnership network throughout Turkey is gaining a whole new dimension! The spirit of the cinematheque is adapted to the 21st century in an innovative way: hotly debated current, alternative films will be screened and discussed in 33 cities, 50 locations at the same time!
The digital festival that !f Istanbul has brought to Turkey and neighbouring countries for nine years now is expanding in collaboration with the New Film Fund.
The New !f² series presents eight screenings spread throughout the year. A selection of films will be shown in all New !f² venues at the same time. Live conversations with filmmakers and guests will be broadcast at the New !f² venues in Turkey and Northern Cyprus.
Yet, I Start Again!
DATE: 29 September 2018, Saturday
TIME: 16:00 (Screening) / 18:00 (Conversation)
VENUE: Please apply here to attend the Istanbul screening at Cinemaximum City’s.
Do you believe life is mostly made up of difficult stories?
Is life hard or do people make it hard? Can you not decide?
Do you think stories that hurt you, harm you or break your heart can later evolve into experiences which transform you and people around you?
Where, when and how does the better part of the story begin?
Can different forms of art guide us to the discovery of the good parts in our stories?
Is it possible to rewrite our stories, and in a tone that empowers us?
We will be looking for answers to these questions and more in PRIMAS, which tells the incredibly powerful, unsettling and inspiring story of two cousins, Rocío and Aldana, who suffered sexual abuse during childhood.
While they rebuild themselves and the lives of others around them, we, as the audience will face ourselves and find an opportunity to get a clear and transparent view of the hush-hush secrets that possibly make us feel guilty or shameful.
Hopefully, we will feel that it is possible to let go of our emotional baggage and feel lighter, like the audiences worldwide did after having seen PRIMAS.
