Note to Self: Films by Nazli Dinçel

Note to Self: Films by Nazlı Dinçel

 “Dinçel is dedicated to exploring, and challenging, one of the most fundamental inequities: what does it take for a young woman to be heard?” cléo, a journal of film and feminism 

Nazlı Dinçel’s handcrafted 16mm films are visceral encounters with bodily existence from her perspective as a woman who emigrated from Turkey while still in her teens. Born in Ankara, Turkey, Dinçel is an artist of passion and courage who challenges viewers through powerful bodily images and texts that raise question of intimacy, sexuality, gender roles and dislocation. Disarmingly direct, Dinçel uses extreme close-ups and scratched, written and spoken texts in films that are sensual, confessional, theoretical and poetic. Her films have shown at The New York, Ann Arbor, Edinburgh, and Rotterdam Film Festivals, the Museum of the Moving Image and The Museum of Modern Art. Dinçel presents two new films, Between Relating and Use (2018) and Instructions On How to Make a Film (2018), and earlier work.
