Sanaz Azari I comme Iran


Sanaz Azari I comme Iran

FR 25.04.2014 20:30 premiere

Brussels, behind the closed doors of a classroom. Based on a handbook about the Islamic revolution, Sanaz Azari, the film’s director, learns how to read and write in Persian, her mother tongue.

During lessons, a teacher introduces her to the rudiments of the language, and thereby also the point of entry into the Iranian history and culture.
Gradually the lessons evolve into a poetic, visual collage which questions the concept of ‘freedom’ and calls into question the essence of revolution.
