The harsh reality of an uncertain economic phase is felt in every segment of what is left of the Turkish society class structure. A Kurdish woman stands up vs her family guidelines and tradition. The last young member of a diminished guild remembers the past ruefully. A kid worker is forced to help his family since he is the only one who earns some money.

Torn between the West and the East, Istanbul becomes the town symbol of a globe that can neither go back nor (yet…) step forward.
Description: With the five-part Cremaster Cycle of films, multi-award-winning artist Matthew Barney invented a densely layered and interconnected sculptural globe that surreally combines sports, biology, sexuality, history, and mythology as it organically evolves.

The locations, characters, and symbols that organize the Cycle films; the Cycle installations as spatial content carriers and extensions of the performances; and objectification of the body and undifferentiated sexuality are addressed, as are the intricacies of costuming, makeup, and sculpting with Barney’s signature materials: plastic, metal, and Vaseline.

It was freeing to be young and rock'n'roll - we changed the fashion and its rules, ran the town, set the stage and remade Melrose ave. our street. It was OUR time, Scenester's in Los Angeles.

This movie is a documentary in the truest sense of the word. There is no commentary, no music, no fast cutting, just photo upon image, all of which support document the weeks following the crumbling of the Berlin Wall. The drama, in this case, is supposed to deal with the trouble of currency in the NEW Germany. The title, "Countdown", was intended to count down to the moment Germany decided which currency to use, post-WALL, but it accieves SO MUCH MORE than that (And thank GOD, because that's a cute da*n boring topics for a film, documentary or not).Ottinger takes her camera absolutely everywhere. These photos are not instantly breathtaking, but eventually we receive to see some rather saying moments between East and West Germans. The most wonderful being this: The camera is set right on the wall's fault line. A hole is being made. We can see folks picking away at it from both sides. A tiny woman dressed in pink picks away on one side, while an old boy picks away on the other. The tiny woman drops her hammer and it falls onto the OTHER side of the wall. Without missing a beat, the old boy picks the girl's hammer up and hands it back to her THROUGH the hole in WALL! The tiny woman smiles at the old man, there's a beat of silence, and then they both resume their picking. THIS IS SUCH AN INCREDIBLE MOMENT! Generations of Germans were picking away at years of oppression, and Ottinger captured the essence of it! Once again, with no commentary, no music, no quick-cutting... JUST LIFE! I dare not write more, as doing so would cheapen the real nature of PURE cinema for those who'll now watch the film. It's an nice achievement, and I hope you'll all give it a chance.
