08 April – Story of a Child Prodigy



A must-see film in 34th Istanbul Film Festival is the documentary Idil Biret: The Portrait of a Child Prodigy. Biret was five-years-old when she played the piano to the Turkish President İsmet İnönü. Two years later, the parliament passed “Idil’s Law” which allowed her to study in Paris. Away from her friends, in an alien city, she was now studying under strict supervision. Her path crossed with legendary pianists of the time, such as Arthur Rubinstein, who later recalled, “The first time I heard her play, it brought tears to my eyes”. The screening is at Pera Museum, 4 p.m.
