Tavsan Kani / Rabbit Blood

"Just an ordinary day at an old mysterious Turkish country house where its residents have an extraordinary way of brewing tea."

Tavsan Kani (Rabbit Blood) is a 5-min animated dark-comedy short film, produced at SVA New York as my MFA thesis film. Story of the film comes from an old Turkish idiom and it show the harmony between different social classes in Ottoman times and lets us compare it with the current life of Turkish society. It had its world premiere at Athens Animfest and national premiere at Istanbul International Film Festival. It screened over 150 international film festivals worldwide and won more than 20 awards.
