Synopsis

Constantinople 1910. The streets are overrun with stray dogs.

The newly-established government, influenced by a model of Western society, uses European experts to choose a method of eradication before deciding, suddenly and alone, to massively deport the dogs to a deserted island away from the city.

Director’s Note
This historical fact is deeply misunderstood in Turkey. The successive authorities did all they could to erase it from popular memory, along with the entire history of the late Ottoman Empire. But, I was struck by the perverse nature of the relationship between the Europeans and the Turks at that time.
One hundred years later, I wanted to illustrate the state of mind this episode reveals through the power of a film.
