Subtle Images of Everyday Revolt: Short Works from Contemporary Iran
March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
In this collection of short films by female and non-binary Iranian filmmakers in Iran and in diaspora, artists explore a wide range of subjects, from stories of war and immigration to the everyday lives of working people of Iran. At this moment of revolt in their country we are turning to Iranian filmmakers to share their vision with us.
This program was curated by Homa Sarabi and Ghazaal Bakhtazad. Sarabi is an artist and educator from Iran and an affiliated faculty member at Emerson, teaching 16mm experimental filmmaking. She works primarily with moving images and examines the potential of documentary in personal storytelling. Bakhtazad is a filmmaker, activist, and professional lighting technician committed to empowering women who enter the patriarchal world of cinema in Iran. A Q&A with some of the filmmakers to follow.
