March 8, 2020: A Memoir


Best Film For International Competition
中国大陆首映 Chinese Mainland Premiere

We are on Taksim Square watching the aftermath of this last mass demonstration in the city, before the COVID-19 pandemic. Two voices reflect on what they see on the screen. A child playing with a red balloon, youngsters dancing on the street, people taking photos, Marina Abramovic’s first exhibition in Istanbul… As the narrative unfolds, images take new meaning: These are screen recordings of Istanbul municipalities’ 7/24 live and open-access ‘Touristic Cameras’ taken on the 8th of March Women’s Day 2020. March 8, 2020: A Memoir is a multi-voiced desktop-essay/documentary attempting to find the blind spots of such images, traveling in time via screen recordings. A desktop documentary/video essay about the Feminist Night March protest in Istanbul in 2020, entirely created with screen recordings of the event and its aftermath, deconstructing and repurposing touristic and surveillance images.
