Film screening: Sanaz Azari, I comme Iran

About this event
Book now

Somewhere in Brussels, behind closed classroom doors, Sanaz Azari is learning to read and write in her native language, Farsi, using a textbook dating from the Islamic revolution. Over the course of the lessons, her teacher initiates her into the basics of the language, which becomes a gateway to the history and culture of Iran. The didactic style of the lessons evolves into a poetic, visual collage which introduces the notion of freedom and questions the meaning of the revolution.
