SCREENINGS AT TERRARIO / THE PLAY
Pelin Esmer
Friday 30 April, 7.30 pm

A programme that regularly presents videos, documentaries and films related to our programming. This programme will be held as a film forum on the last Friday of each month, with an invitation following the screenings to dialogue and debate with creators.

Beatriz Santiago will be present at the debate following the screening.

The Play, 2005 (Turkey). Documentary. Pelin Esmer. Running time 70’. Turkish with subtitles in Spanish.

Nine peasant women who live in Arslankoy, a mountain village in southern Turkey, spend their days working hard in the fields, in construction and at home. To lighten the load of their everyday lives, these women get together to write and put on a play based on the stories of their own lives. At the local high school, they meet and work with the principal, Mr. Huseyin. They reveal stories from their lives they are still afraid to give voice to and confront. Under the curious gaze of the men of the village, the women work irelessly, arguing and defining a very amusing game, “The Women’s Cry!” This documentary addresses the process of this game and the change experienced by the women during this creative period.

In late 2007 Intermediæ began an ongoing permaculture programme by turning the space between the Matadero wall and Intermediæ façade into a garden called Avant-Garden. Its purpose was to create a metaphor for understanding process and participation, generating possibilities for experiencing their meaning, while transforming an unused space into an urban garden. Various projects, presentations and actions have been carried out in this context aimed at proposing, informing about and lending visibility to initiatives contributing to generating habitats that are more sustainable than current ones. Since then, numerous creators, activists, researchers, farmers, etc. have come to Intermediae. Horticulture is what they all have in common. Seen from artistic, social, technological, and other perspectives, they have shown us specific realities, proposed alternatives, and generated projects for transforming our cities.

The most recent was Urban Fruit Action, un project by Fallen Fruit to turn the nearby urban environment into a green area by planting fruit trees in public space. Fallen Fruit is an art collective that got its start by making maps of public fruit trees in Los Angeles and other U.S. cities.

Jean Marie has been a bicycle messenger for the last ten years. In London, he has gained a reputation for organizing the maddest, most innovative “Alleycats”, which are illegal races held at rush hour. Now, with his friend Mike’s help, he is trying to set up the first “alleycat” race on the crowded streets of Paris. As a messenger, Jean Marie is part of an urban subculture that prizes independence, risk-taking and freedom in contemporary urban life. As the father of a two-year-old son, his responsibilities begin to weigh on him, leading him to question his lifestyle.
