{SCREENING} Distant Constellation on 11/04/2019

 APRIL: Mysteries of memory 

Two promising directorial debuts venture into the uncharted waters of human memory, searching for those unexpected details that keep it alive.

 Distant Constellation (2017) 

Thursday 11/04 at 21:00 @ Exile Room

Director: Shevaun Mizrahi | Country: Turkey, USA | Duration: 82’

This haunted reverie drops us inside an Istanbul retirement home, where the battle-scarred residents –pranksters, historians, artists and would-be Casanovas– bask in the camera’s attention. A creaky- voiced woman confides her personal account of the Armenian genocide. A sweetly deluded pianist performs a composition before confessing his love. A blind photographer fiddles with his flash as he points his own camera back at us. Full of Tarkovskian atmospherics, Shevaun Mizrahi’s playful, immaculately controlled film finds hypnotizing rhythms in the residents’ limbo-like state. Meanwhile, outside, ominous construction equipment transforms the land.
