Content advisory: this film contains graphic imagery that may be upsetting to some viewers
Dir. Deniz Tortum. Turkey. 2020, 71 mins. In Turkish with English subtitles. This immersive depiction of Istanbul's venerable Cerrahpaşa Hospital, where the filmmaker himself was born and where his father has long worked as a doctor, passes coolly through its darkened corridors from the physical spaces of morgue, operating and observation rooms to the virtual spaces of vital-signs monitors and X-ray machines. With a formal sense of camera movement that simultaneously embraces the unplanned and unexpected, Tortum crafts a vision pitched between the eerily posthuman and the urgently humanist. North American premiereTickets: $15 ($11 seniors & students / $9 youth ages 3–17 / free for Museum members). (Members may contact firstname.lastname@example.org
