SCREENING

I for Iran (I Comme Iran)

Ongoing

With director Sanaz Azari in person

Dir. Sanaz Azari. Belgium, 2014, 50 mins. U.S. premiere. A Belgian filmmaker of Iranian descent learns how to read and write in Persian, her mother tongue, using a textbook dating from the Islamic revolution. With beguiling and deceptive simplicity, the chalkboard lessons (“Dad doesn’t give bread, because there is no work.”) form an evocative portrait of post-revolutionary Iran. Preceded by International Tourism (Tourisme International) (Dir. Marie Voignier. France, 2014, 48 mins. U.S. premiere) The tension between the utopian political fantasies and the harsher reality of North Korea is deftly revealed in this formally experimental travelogue; and LIVEPAN (Dir. Sasha Parker, Austria, 2013, 2 mins. U.S. premiere), a wry formalist study of a woman ironing and laughing.
