Mania Akbari’s films have dealt with some of the most sensitive topics in the Iranian cultural landscape - politically relevant and bravely personal. At this event she will screen and discuss two recent works.
From Tehran to London is the film she was halfway through shooting when she left Iran. This poetic exploration of women’s roles is paired with Roya Akbari’s Dancing Mania, an insightful analysis that explores the key themes of dance, sexual imagery and death in her sisters film.
From Tehran to London (Mania Akbari, Iran, 2012, 45min) + Dancing Mania (Roya Akbari, Iran, 2013, 25min).
