- Wim Wenders
Inspired by Wim Wenders’ book A Sense of Place, this anthology project sees a group of Iranian filmmakers develop new work inspired by a connection to place. Collectively, it offers a diverse portrait of contemporary Iran, from filmmakers living inside the country and beyond its borders. The films transport us from a Troglodyte village in the south and a seaside town on the Persian Gulf to rapid and uneven urban development in Tehran, to a medieval French village where a poet reflects on his father’s homeland. Beyond its artistic expression, this collective programme also evinces a militant character – inviting us into a multiple-perspective reflection on a country eager for change.
In this special programme we will present four of the Iran - Sense of Place films, followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and project curator Afsun Moshiry.
The programme was developed by Afsun Moshiry in partnership with The Wim Wenders Foundation and is co-produced by Pejman Foundation and La Onda Productions. The filmmakers Afsaneh Salari, Mohammadreza Farzad, Shirin Barghnavard, Mina Keshavarz, Pooya Abbasian and Azin Feizabadi, were mentored by Wim Wenders and Hella Wenders.
