What is Istanbul doing this week? (1-7 May)

Starting with John Locke's "It is labor that makes all the difference," I celebrate the holiday of our workers and laborers and wish that solidarity and goodness are united. I suggest one of those that emphasizes the meaning of today for me, Charlie Chaplin's 1936 film "Modern Times", about a worker who struggles to survive amid urbanization and the development of factories. IMDB score 8.5/10.
