Off-White Tulips

(Aykan Safoğlu, 2013, 24 min)

Concentrating on James Baldwin's extended stays in Istanbul in 60's and 70's, the film explores the limits of an autobiography mostly relying on found materials such as Sedat Pakay's photography. Racism, transnational discourses, queer politics and appropriation art are also being investigated throughout the video-essay.

North American Premiere, 16mm


Directed by Aykan Safoğlu
