When Hay was seven years old, he found a dead horse in an open field and watched his father and other adults struggle to get rid of it. Unsure of this memory, he is nonetheless influenced by this incident and, when he cuts himself during a sacrificial rite, everything comes flashing back.
Our next Locarno highlight is Dead Horse Nebula, a film as intriguing as its title. This superb exploration of memory delves into the relationship of men and nature, reaching philosophical heights through atmospheric, deceptively anecdotal vignettes––and won Aktaş the Best Emerging Director award!
