  • (“I also wanted to spend some time with Fuad (Al Hafiz Sanusi), who wanders around the space trapped in a dog mask. There’s a moment where he cries out, plaintively, Aku anjing? Aku… anjing? (I’m a dog? I’m… a dog?), and it just broke my heart. What happens when people cannot even recognise the debilitating roles they have taken on in a family, in a community? How do they even escape?”)
