Date produced: 1968

Filmmaker(s):

Artun Yeres

Jak Şalom

Description:

“Beyoğlu 68 Üzerine Beyoğlu’nu filme çekmeye karar verdik. Artun yönetecek, ben kamerayı kullanacaktım. Güç bela birkaç kutu pelikülle 16 mm.lik bir kamera edindik ve Mayıs 68’de Beyoğlu’na çıktık. Artun bana kaydedilmesini istediği şeyleri gösteriyor, ben çekiyordum. Amaç tüketim toplumunu eleştirmekti ama senaryo yoktu. İşin kurguda bağlanacağını biliyorduk […].” Jak Şalom, sinematek.tv: http://sinematek.tv/beyoglu-68/ (25 October 2019).

“On Beyoğlu 68: ‘We decided to film Beyoğlu. Artun had to direct it and I was responsible for the camera operations. We hardly found a box of unexposed film as well as a 16mm camera and started wandering around Beyoğlu. Artun was telling me what to shoot and I was recording. The purpose was to critique consumer society, but there was no script. We knew that we need to deal with it during the process of montage’ […].” Jak Şalom, sinematek.tv: http://sinematek.tv/beyoglu-68/ (25 October 2019).

Xmas Time

Date produced: 1951

Filmmaker(s):

Grace Lindner

Description:

"Most Christmas films seem to be concerned with only one aspect of this December holiday — the gaiety of family life around the tree, opening presents and a festive dinner. Grace Lindner has recorded the material side of the season in the early footage of her film, Xmas Time, as she shows gleaming shop windows, hurrying shoppers, decorated doorways and members of her family around the hearthside. But in a smooth transition from a creche under the tree to the children saying their prayers, she ends her film with a series of architectural studies of the spires and bell towers of churches, filmed through bleak branches against a winter sky. This moving climax, accompanied by a choir recording of The Lord's Prayer, admirably fulfills her aim to portray the triumph of the spirit of Christmas over the baser observances." Movie Makers, Dec. 1951, 412.
