YÇK Derneği’nin Daveti / The Invitation of the NMW Association

Orkide Ünsür, Gülgün Yüceer

Yeni Çağdaş Kadınlar Eğitim Kültür ve Yardımlaşma Derneği’nin 13 Mayıs Çarşamba günü İstanbul Yelken Kulübü’nde yapılan toplantılarına konuşmacı olarak davet edildim.

Dernek başkanı Sayın Gülgün Yüceer’in konuşması ile açılan toplantıda derneğin etkinlikleri ve faaliyetlerinin yanı sıra Franz Kafka’dan hoş bir anekdota da yer verildi.

Çalışmalarımla ilgili kısa bir sunum yaptım; ardından  kısa belgesel filmlerim 8’den 8’e SAHİLDEKİLER ve Metruk’u izledik ve  Lâmia-KAN BAĞI’ndan  bir bölüm okuyup, kitabımı dernek üyeleri için imzaladım.

Nazik davetlerinden onur ve mutluluk duyduğum derneğin tüm çalışmalarında başarılar dilerim.

I’ve kindly been invited to attend as a guest speaker to the meeting of the New Modern Women Education Culture and Solidarity Association on  Wednesday, 13 May 2015 in Istanbul Yacht Club.

After the opening speech of the president Ms. Gülgün Yüceer, they talked about their latest works and shared one of the lovely anecdotes of Franz Kafka as well.

I made a short presentation about my short films, my book and my other projects.  We watched COASTLANDERS 8 to 8 and The Abandoned. I read the opening scene of Lamia-CONSANGUINITY and finally signed my books for the members.

I am very pleased and honored by their kind invitation and wishing them success in their all works.

(Thanks for the photos to Ms. Birgül Tekin.)
