Kenan Kavut: “Rough violence seems repugnant.”

Saturday, April 14

The Escape from “Human Rights in Cinema Competition” was screened at Atlas Sineması with the participation of the director Kenan Kavut and the film crew. Kavut said: “Our purpose was to be sensitive about this subject; rough violence seems repugnant to me. I thought about how this violence would evolve. This is the problem with those who don’t experience war, actually. Aliye (Jale Arıkan) is a lonely and hurt character. With the character of the man who collects frogs (Ali Suliman), I wanted to portray the trauma of someone who escapes to another place. He was actually a delusion that the character created in his mind; he didn’t actually exist.”
