Anima explores the influence different cultures and beliefs have upon the relationships between humans and non-human animals. Set against the backdrop of personal memories and dreams, this short documentary investigates the ideologies and rituals associated with sacredness and sacrifice.
By witnessing a range of encounters between humans and animals, Yusuf Emre Yalçın’s intensely personal documentary interrogates the basis of our anthropocentric view of the world. Various questions arise regarding our conditioned choices to eat certain animals while getting attached to others.
