"Ottoman Footage," which was gathered from different archives around the world and presented to the world at last year's International Istanbul Silent Film Days, is returning to the festival with a new set of footage that dates back to the Ottoman Empire. Cities that were once a part of the Ottoman Empire come together through footage revealing Ottoman heritage. The centenary of the Battle of Gallipoli and so-called Armenian genocide will also be discussed in the section. The audience will be able to enjoy surprising imagery from Rhodes, Tripoli, Sevastopol and Istanbul, the capital of the empire. The screenings will be followed by panel sessions.

When: Dec. 4

Where: Pera Museum
