Between Delicate and Violent

Between Delicate and Violent

Hands can tap into memories that the brain can’t access. In an experimental exploration of this physical memory, Şirin Bahar Demirel edits family album photos to expose the domestic violence that lies beneath the images.
Newsreel 242 – Sunny Railways

Newsreel 242 – Sunny Railways

A tribute to the tens of thousands of politically idealistic young people who helped build a railroad between Sarajevo and Šamac in 1947. Their hope for a better world has evaporated, but their idealism is an enduring source of inspiration.
Our Special Little Secret

Our Special Little Secret

An autobiographical essay in which the filmmaker uses her own home videos to investigate how she must have experienced sexual abuse by a family member as a child, and what impact this has had on her life as an adult.
