The Complete Letters

Filmed Correspondence

Pera Museum (Istanbul, Turkey)

Opening on 11October 2014, the Pera Museum (Istanbul) shows The Complete Letters. Filmed Correspondence. 

The creative relation between Víctor Erice and Abbas Kiarostami generated by the exhibition Erice-Kiarostami. Correspondences gave an impetus to this new cinematographic format: the exchange of filmed ideas between two filmmakers, examining affinities and differences, mutual respect and shared interests. Other filmmakers have been invited to explore this format, establishing their own variables of visual correspondence, seen as a reflection in the present tense on everything in their environment that stimulates them, in a space of creative freedom.

“The Complete Letters. Filmed Correspondence” is a project that brings together the works exchanged by these pairs of directors who, despite being geographically distant, are united by the desire to share ideas and viewpoints. This is the case of Isaki Lacuesta and Naomi Kawase; Jaime Rosales and Wang Bing; Albert Serra and Lisandro Alonso; Jose Luis Guerin and Jonas Mekas, and Fernando Eimbcke and So Yong Kim.
