    Hakan Can

    Director and Artist Hakan Can is currently based in Berlin. After finishing his design degree he has passionately dedicated himself to create cinematic poetry - an art form, in which film and poetry meet. His mostly dark but still beautiful fairy-tale worlds are marked by the suffering of love and a quest of meaning- driven by negotiations of that singular question of the human condition. The poetic and the arbitrary pay important parts in his work, as does the aesthetic in the sense of schiller.
