It’s enough to turn from vibrant Marticeva Street in neighboring Vojnovićeva Street in which among its colorful buildings, a new Open-Air-Cinema location under the open sky screened films. Avvantura URBAN offered award winning films in the program, among others Fatih Akin´s CROSSING THE BRIDGE a journey through Istanbul, a city that bridges Europe and Asia, this causes a well-known concepts of East and West. The project began when Alexander Hacke worked on the soundtrack for Akins “Head-On”. The film has a strong Turkish relationship by Hacke charted in music. He was fascinated by this new sound which has been exposed. For “Head-On” Hacke recorded with Selim Sesler Orchestra. As none of the artists did not speak the other’s language, they had to communicate through music.
