Straight Stories, Part 2: Anya

Bouchra Khalili. 2008. France. vo Arabic. s Spanish. 11’

Anya embraces a double trajectory. On one side, an exploration of the imagined frontier that makes up the Bosphorus as a continuous drift between Europe and Asia and on the other a tale, recounted offscreen. Through the constant movement of spatial, visual and auditory disconnections, Anya unveils a mental expedition that takes us to meet a young Iraki woman waiting for a visa for Australia since 1996.
