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