Maryam Tafakory

Audiovisual lecture about the representation of womanhood and the absence of female voice in Iranian post revolutionary cinema and media.

Audiovisual Lecture, TASHWEESH FESTIVAL
TH 18.10.2018 20:30

In this audiovisual lecture, Maryam Tafakory speaks about the absence of female voices in post-revolutionary cinema in Iran. Born in Shiraz, Tafakory now works in London as an artist and filmmaker. Partly in the form of a performance, she now examines her own work in terms of (self-) censorship, femininity, rights of transition, poetry and religion. On Tafakory's screen, all the boundaries between the personal and the political vanish right before our eyes.

As part of TASHWEESH, a 10-day multidisciplinary festival about feminism in the Middle-East, North Africa and Europe. w/ Goethe-Institut Brüssel
