Women in Love is about a group of middle-aged widows reminiscing about their lives with their husbands. Their conversation is shaped around their vulnerability, fragility and the isolation imposed upon them as child brides. Their painful descriptions of domestic violence and alcohol abuse heighten our awareness of the nature of matrimonial loyalty through stories of love and loss.

Life is Beautiful focuses on a group of drunken young men in Ankara’s Sakarya Street (a.k.a. Sakarya Beer Park) and their excessive behaviour in what has become a fundamental and iconic expression of nationalism: the army send-off. Sakarya Street is not only a performance platform that has become an open hub of political protest where divisions between the rich and the poor, the uneducated and learned melt away, but also a forum where different cultural groups meet and carouse. “In Sakarya Street I encountered young men chanting and singing songs both in the Turkish and Kurdish language. Improvising, I plunged into the mass with my camera and encouraged them to take their inordinate behaviour to its extreme. Cheered on by me the started to push and shove each other in provocation, creating make-believe squabbles and losing themselves in cursing and jokes. Prompted by their heightened nationalistic feelings to attack everything Kurdish on the one hand, they were unawar of the fact that they had stepped into an altered world in which Kurdish folk songs provided the backdrop.” (Ferhat Özgür)

Ferhat Özgür (TR) was born in Ankara in 1965 and lives and works in Istanbul. He graduated at the Gazi University, the Education Faculty’s Department of Painting, and he acquired his Master and PhD degrees at the Hacettepe University’s Faculty of Fine Arts where he taught for over a decade. Aside his artistic work he also writes articles for different newspapers and periodicals.

Film programme is organized in the framework of the project “Invisibile violence”, a multi-disciplinary project co-produced by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade (MoCAB) and ARTIUM Basque Museum-Centre of Contemporary Art.
