With a minimal, stage-like set incorporating only chalk outlines of streets and houses on the floor, Dogville is set in the small, fictional town of Dogville. The film tells the story of Grace Mulligan, a fugitive on the run who must gain the trust of the townspeople to be able to stay. What starts off as Grace’s voluntary participation in the community gives way to an increasingly abusive dynamic. Her presence catalyses dark impulses within the town’s citizens and raises complex issues of morality, accountability, power and human relationships.

Istanbul-Paris-Istanbul: Mario Prassinos

Mario Prassinos liked Istanbul more than the current Istanbulites of today. It is obvious that you can understand this from the article written by her daughter Catherine Prassinos in the Pera Museum's book on the artist.
