Tales of Tails
Dogs on Screen
Pera Film’s new program brings together stories of dogs from all around the world as part of Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation İstanbul Research Institute’s The Four-Legged Municipality: Street Dogs of İstanbul exhibition. Tales of Tails: Dogs on Screen explores how cinema reserves a heart-warming celebration of genres and captivating stories of man’s best friend: dogs. The program captures emotions of humans and dogs alike; the collected films come in a variety of visual narratives from drama, comedy, horror, animation, documentaries to the avant-garde. Whether it’s in Patagonia or Budapest, in Oregon or a deserted island in the ocean, these ‘stars with tails’ become symbols of hope or rebellion. In these films, dogs may be a reason to live for their owners and we get to know people through their relationships with these dogs.
Now it is time to wander in these cinematic streets with Bombón, Hagen, Lucy, Truman, Tulip, Otto, Baxter, Lolabelle and many others!
