The Spark Is You

Fatehrad, Azadeh [Curator] and Pollock, Griselda [Presenter] (2019) The Spark Is You. In: Short films by Persian female filmmakers; 27 Jun 2019, London, U.K.. (Unpublished)


This screening at Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art, London, curated by Dr Azadeh Fatehrad focuses on experimental film essays produced by Iranian 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 was followed by a discussion with Professor Griselda Pollock and Dr Azadeh Fatehrad.
