The second film of Aki Kaurismäki’s intended migrant trilogy set in harbor towns, Toivon tuolla puolen [The Other Side of Hope] (2017) portrays an unlikely friendship between a Syrian asylum seeker and an elderly Finnish restaurant owner. After Khaled escapes the detention center, he meets recent bachelor and gambler Wikström. Thrown into unfamiliar worlds, together they assist each other in navigating the adversities they both face. As part of Thursday Cinema, subtitled screening of the film will start at 19.00 in the Walk-in Cinema.

Programmed by Atay İlgün and Caner Bozkurt, Coding the Party: Algorave with Istanbul-based artists RAW, Tuğba Selin and Konstantinos Vasilakos will take place following the screening. Often composed of generative visuals with the projected code on screen, algorave is a subgenre of experimental electronic music.

On Long Thursday, The Universe Flickers exhibition, the serving Kitchen, and Robinson Crusoe 389 bookstore at SALT Beyoğlu, as well as the exhibition Idealist School, Productive Studio at SALT Galata will be open until 22.00.
