Curated by Dr Azadeh Fatehrad, this screening focuses on experimental film essays produced by Persian female filmmakers. The programme showcases some of the most thought-provoking films that reflect on the traces of memory, history and philosophy in Iranian culture through cinematic syntax, poetry and visual aesthetic. The selected films by Zara Zandieh and Maryam Tafakory look at the duality and shared experience of suffering or pleasure; enforcement and innocence; as well as individuality and universality.
The screening is followed by a discussion with Professor Griselda Pollock and Dr. Azadeh Fatehrad.
