DESCRIPTION

Please join us for a rare screening of Kutlug Ataman's 1999 feature film entitled 'Lola + Bilidikid'.  

The film,  written and directed by Ataman, was shot in Berlin and deals with the Turkish subculture there, as well as the taboos of gay life, transgender and transvestite men and the concomitant effects on family dynamics.  It presages many of the themes further explored in his most famous art works, such as 'Never My Soul', 'Women Who Wear Wigs', 'KUBA' and 'Turkish Delight'.

The film will be introduced by Gregor Muir, Director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts at 6.45 pm.

The screening will be held at No 3 Duke Street St James's, London SW1Y 6BN.

 

The event is free, but booking is required. Please email Louisa Adam: louisa@thomasdane.com
