The first part of this collaboration, titled ‘Her Journey’ will screen at Sharjah Film Platform 4, the Foundation’s annual film festival.
‘Her Journey’ is curated by Müge Turan, Film Curator at Istanbul Modern, and includes 10 films from Turkey by women directors focusing on women’s subjectivities that are fragmentary, multiple, contradictory and in constant flux.
Highlighting both the diversity and intersectionality of identities, these women-centric stories — three feature-length films, two documentaries and five shorts — portray memorable characters that shimmer with life and passion, while reflecting historical and cultural pressures.
In 2022, Sharjah Art Foundation will curate a second film program at Istanbul Modern of which additional details will be announced soon.
Running till November 27, 2021, Sharjah Film Platform 4 features a film program of over 50 short and feature-length films in the narrative, documentary and experimental genres.
The festival also includes a public program of talks and workshops led by renowned filmmakers, and the SFP Industry Hub, an industry-focused professional program that supports the production and distribution of films.
