Baby Pictures is our regular Friday morning film slot exclusively for carers with little ones aged twelve months and under. This week Auntie Lia goes in search of her estranged niece in Istanbul.

Lia, a retired school teacher living in Georgia, hears from a young neighbour Achi that her long lost niece Tekla, a transgender woman, has crossed the border into Turkey. Hoping to bring Tekla home after a period of estrangement, Lia travels to Istanbul with the unpredictable Achi to find her. Exploring the hidden depths of the city, they cross paths with a transgender lawyer called Evrim, who helps them in their search.

Humanistic and tender, Akin’s third feature is a heartfelt portrayal of overcoming the degrees of separation that divide us.

Baby Pictures 

Baby Pictures is open to carers and little ones of twelve months and under. As everyone in the cinema is a parent or carer, there’s no need to worry if it gets a little noisy. Everyone understands. Customers not accompanying a baby will be turned away.

The lights are turned up a little bit and the sound is a little softer to create a peaceful environment for you and the baby. It’s just for carers (Mum, Dad, Granny, Granda, whoever it is it looking after the tot) and babies. Up to two adults can come with a babyPlease note: we cannot allow babies over the age of 12 months to come to Baby Pictures.
