I would recommend Villa Komagowa, a film by one of my favorite artists who I co-create with, Irmak Altıner.

In her first short film, she examines the dynamics of power between a woman, her foot callus, and a bug over the span of nine days, exploring a woman's struggle with solitude.
— Yasemin Mori

The woman spares the bug's life, knowing that nature will eventually claim it, and establishes the boundaries of her power. The script is written by Kaan Müjdeci, a Cannes Music Festival winner, for his first film Sivas, which I highly recommend for you to see also.
