Sunday in the Park with Ed and a dog: a lady walks with her dog – an everyday scene, only that in the case of Saskia Edens’ performance, the dog only consists of bones. The dog is on a lead – he is a puppet; the domesticated man-animal relation is sliding towards an archaic world, from taming to savagery. At once suspended and bound with the body of the performer, the dog moves wildly and outside the constraints of gravity. In ‘Canis Lupus’, the two actors – performer and puppet – are in relation with one another – one transcribing the movements of the other in a random way.

After a long absence, Berzan’s father Şiyar returns to his family in their mountain village, only to be quickly arrested again by the government forces. The family is forced to flee in order to avoid further harassment. The film serves as a metaphor for the painful experiences of all the Kurdish activists who disappeared between 1990-1994.
