Tales of Tails: Dogs on Screen

February 10, 2017 – February 28, 2017
Various screening times

The Pera Museum, Meşrutiyet Cad 65, Tepebaşı, Beyoğlu, Istanbul


This film programme brings together stories of dogs from all around the world as part of The Four-Legged Municipality, an exhibition on Istanbul’s street dogs at the Istanbul Research Institute.

The cult classic Best in Show, Christopher Guest’s mockumentary about a prestigious dog show, will be screened, as will Wiener-Dog, an offbeat comedy that documents the various odd owners of a dachshund. Audiences can also see My Dog Tulip, a touching animated film based on the memoirs of BBC editor and author JR Ackerley, who experienced a 15-year friendship with his dog Tulip.

In the drama category, the standouts are Heart of a Dog, which documents artist Laurie Anderson’s unconditional love for her dog Lolabelle, and Wendy and Lucy, an American realist film about Wendy, an itinerant worker, and her dog, Lucy.
