CCA Derry~Londonderry will host a public screening of Taskafa - Stories of the Street, a film investigating the street dogs of Istanbul.
Gareth Evans, film curator at the Whitechapel Gallery, says of Taskafa:
At once a genuinely singular portrait of a world city in transition, an affecting and committed study of those marginalized by globalization and an empathetic vision of resistance through a wholly different register of belonging, Taskafa is that rarest of breeds, a work of poetry and praise, singing of the heightened daily joys that come from a true comradeship between species.
The screening will be followed by a scripting workshop with Didem Durak for participants of the Our Neighborhood project.
