(Shevaun Mizrahi, 2017, Turkey/USA, DCP, 80 min.)

Photographer-turned-filmmaker Shevaun Mizrahi profiles the inhabitants of a retirement home in Istanbul in this intimate documentary, which won major prizes at the Venice and Locarno international film festivals. In beautifully-composed close-ups and long takes, her subjects ruminate and reminisce as the city transforms around them. The work of an exciting new voice in film, Distant Constellation offers a sensitive, subtle meditation on aging, history, and memory.

Co-presented with the Keyman Modern Turkish Studies program.
