IFF - I for Iran
I for Iran
(Belgium/Iran, Sanaz Azari, 2014, 50 mins)
Filmmaker Sanaz Azari, who emigrated from Iran to Belgium as a child, documents learning how to read and write Persian as an adult. Taught by an older Iranian exile using an elementary textbook from the Islamic Revolution, these basic language classes become anything-but-basic lessons on life before and after Iran's upheaval in 1979.
Compelling, poignant, sometimes funny stories, both true and fiction, from around the world are screened at the International Film Festival in Trenton, New Jersey. Experience some of the most exquisitely beautiful and thought-provoking film that we screen! In 2015, a theme of cross-cultural encounters or collisions runs through many of the films, from IN THE CROSSWIND, an Estonian film which chronicles mass deportation under the Soviet's to the sometimes poignant, sometimes comic interaction between Australian caucasion and aboriginal culture in CHARLIE'S COUNTRY.
Screening will also include short film TBA.
