GARDEN

Turkey, 2016, 6’, Color, Non- dialogue

Director: İdil Ar Uçaner
Screenplay: İdil Ar Uçaner
Production: Berat İlk and İdil Ar Uçaner
Animation: Tuncay Çetin
Classic Animation: Erhan Gezen, Murat Çelik
Concept / Character Design: İdil Ar Uçaner
Music: Kerem Akdağ
Sound Design: Ozan Kurtuluş
Project Consultant: Cemal Erez
Producer: Berat İlk

The screenplay for this is based on the director’s own life story…

The story of a girl who has spent her childhood within nature, only to grow up in the city afterwards… First, we meet the garden of the little girl’s childhood and her friends. The horns in her hair symbolize her connection to nature.

The life inside the garden is filled with joy, creativity, fluidity and love. The little girl has learned love, imagination, feeling, observation and many other things inside this garden. The little child feels huge in the garden!

She cannot make a connection with the masked people of the city, who come to visit the garden from time to time and questions the reason. The emotionless urbanites who have grown distant to themselves are seen only behind these masks.

As she grows up, her visits to the garden grow infrequent. She has now started attending school in the city. There, she feels lonely. As days pass, she feels increasingly smaller. Still, she cannot connect with the masked. One day, she signs a contract and puts on the mask she is handed. Now, she has a job. For years, she works away at a desk; she sits and walks with a permanent hunch, and as she does, even plants desert her. Plants and flowers shed their leaves in the presence of her energy. She holds meetings and lunches with the masked. She is now one of them. She has forgotten all green.

It continues this way until a stray dog guides her in the city.

One day, the girl follows the dog who wants to guide her and discovers a new garden in the heart of the city. She recalls the value of nature and who she is at core.

’Now again, what is the topic?’
‘It is the insecurities…’

Confidence is loud, insecurities are silent. They are the private thoughts of the sole individual. With the hope of starting a conversation on this silent topic, Invisible Walls shares the confidence/ insecurity stories from four different characters.

İlhan, once lost his trust over society explains the origins of his habit of ‘analyzing people’. Aylin feels ‘stuck’ when speaking in English. Batuhan talks about learning to show his ‘true-self’ and Ayşe shares her thoughts about comparing herself to the ‘others’. While watching their intriguing and sincere stories, insecurity in us giggles with it’s ever presence and we wonder how and when we implanted that feeling in our lives.
