Tehran-geles by Arash Nassiri wint prijs op het Melbourne International Film Festival
Tehran-geles, geregisseerd door Arash Nassiri en geproduceerd door Eric Prigent, heeft de RMIT University Award for Best Experimental Short Film gewonnen op het Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF). Deze intrigerende film is recent verworven voor de Han Nefkens H+F Collection.
Though radicalism is implied in the designation – the experimental film – the reality is that non-linear film works have developed their own century-long traditions and expressions. Nassiri’s astonishing and mesmerising film, that blurs the lines between animation and the real, between science fiction and documentary, is a visually inventive exploration of what the future of the moving image might look like. In its structure and its editing, it uses the language of cartography to take us on a journey through a landscape that might be Tehran, that might be Los Angeles, or just might be a mutant metropolis born of the tensions arising from exile and belonging. In a word, stunning.
