Film Screening
Sevmek Zamani (Time to Love), 1965

In conjunction with the exhibition Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU's Abby Weed Grey Collection

This Turkish drama, directed by Metin Erksan, features Müşfik Kenter as a poor painter who falls in love with the image of a female singer while at work in one of the large villas on Istanbul’s Princes’ Islands. What happens when she appears in the flesh? Sevmek Zamani is a remarkable example of the Turkish new wave that has rarely been screened or written about outside Turkey. 1:25 min., black-and-white, in Turkish with English subtitles. Introduced by Farbod Honarpisheh, Postdoctoral Associate, Film & Media Studies, Yale University.

Co-sponsored by NYU’s Department of Cinema Studies, Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, Ottoman and Turkish Studies Initiative (OTS-NYU), and Grey Art Gallery.
