Italy in 1963 faces increasing unemployment, costliness, internal immigration, housing problems and class struggles; Mexico in 1999 witnesses a major student strike at the National Autonomous University of Mexico; and Egypt in 2011-2012 transforms from a revolution to presidential elections…

Focusing on social life changes in different geographies and times, We’re just getting by is comprised of three films from SALT’s previous Thursday Cinema programs, realized with the support of Garanti Mortgage. The selection addresses the economical and political conditions surrounding people in large cities, and also highlights the extraordinary and inspiring potentials that challenging circumstances may bring along.

Shown in original language with Turkish and English subtitles, all screenings will begin at 19.00, and are open to all.
