The 13th Istanbul Biennial Film Programme's Panel Discussion is on 8 April

The 13th Istanbul Biennial Film Programme “Am I Not a Citizen? Barbarism, Civic Awakening, and the City” Panel Discussion will be held on Monday, 8 April at Pera Museum Auditorium

The film programme Am I Not a Citizen? Barbarism, Civic Awakening, and the City features full-length films, documentaries, and video art works that question the limits of civilization in our day and age. It focuses on different responses to the destabilizing force of the neoliberal system in which notions of barbarism, activism, and civic participation are redefined. How can cinema articulate these complex notions? What is the role of filmmakers in offering alternatives to current realities? These questions will be opened up to discussion in this panel.

Among the speakers are member of the art collective Chto Delat (What is to be done?) and among the creators of the film Tower: A Songspiel”  Dmitri Vilensky, director of the film Foreigners out! Schlingensiefs Container Paul Poet and director Berke Baş. Curators of the film programme, Fulya Erdemci and Yael Messer will start the panel discussion.

Speakers: Dmitri Vilensky (Chto Delat), Paul Poet and Berke Baş
Introduction: Fulya Erdemci and Yael Messer
