Join us at e-flux Screening Room for a benefit screening of Pelin Tan & Anton Vidokle’s Gilgamesh: She Who Saw the Deep (2022).

Please buy tickets or donate here. All proceeds from ticket sales and donations will go toward disaster relief in southeastern Turkey, where two earthquakes on February 6 have caused the collapse of hundreds of buildings in dozens of cities, resulting in a death toll that has exceeded 3,500.

In addition, proceeds from e-flux Shop will now be sent to friends providing relief efforts within Turkey. e-flux Shop sells artist multiples to raise funds for artists and art organizations in urgent need, continuing from many benefit events e-flux has organized over the years to respond to calamities in various parts of the world. The inventory of e-flux Shop contains products designed by Jonas Staal, Hito Steyerl, Lawrence Weiner, Liam Gillick, and Anton Vidokle.

The benefit for Turkey follows e-flux Shop’s benefit campaign launched in September 2022 for the Oleksandr Dovzhenko National Centre in Kyiv, Ukraine. We sincerely thank all those who contributed to this cause.

Gilgamesh: She Who Saw the Deep 
Kurdish and Turkish with English subtitles, 47:12 minutes

The Epic of Gilgamesh is the oldest literary work discovered to date. Composed in Mesopotamia more than five thousand years ago, it describes the journey of Gilgamesh, the ruler of one of the first historical metropolises: Uruk. Following the death of Enkidu—the best and closest friend—Gilgamesh embarks on a quest to find immortality, so as to avoid meeting the same fate. Part god and part human, Gilgamesh encounters a varied cast of personages, ranging from the Goddess Ishtar and Scorpion people, to Utnapishtim, who, like Noah, saved humanity from the Great Flood by building an arc. Filmed on the banks of the Tigris River, near the ancient cities of Mardin, Hasankeyf, and Dara, the film takes us on a journey through time and space. Inspired by Sumerian cosmology as well as the philosophy of Russian cosmism, and accompanied by an original score by Alva Noto, Gilgamesh: She Who Saw the Deep is a meditation on questions of living, death, friendship, love, and immortality. This film is in Kurdish and Turkish, and features an all-woman cast of actors from the Amed Theater in Diyarbakır.
