Directed by Francis Alÿs
Turkey, 2015

Between Armenia and Turkey lie the ruins of once bustling Ani. Now all that can be heard is the wind and the rustling, flower-heavy grass. Birdsong breaks the silence. Sometimes, someone hurries through the grass. The inhabitants of this desolate place? Has everything been staged?
