This courageously reflective essay revisits the history of the Iranian revolution as if it were the history of Iranian cinema. On the eve of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, when more than 130 cinemas were burnt to the ground, the characters abandon the screen and the people turn their cameras onto each other, taking centre stage in a rapidly unfolding drama which they direct themselves.
Born in 1978, Mohammadreza Farzad is one of the most acclaimed documentary filmmakers of the new generation of the Iranian cinema with works that have circulated around the world in more than 30 festivals such as Berlinale, IDFA and Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival.
