Notes from Iran

A queer-feminist perspective on longing, belonging and empowerment.

Iranian film history has a deep tradition of resistance, self-empowerment and change. 

This program is characterized by a poetic and metaphorical visual language, as well as the ability to tell a story very explicitly and without detours.

We follow trans masculine, trans feminine and female protagonists surviving in a heteronormative environment. A queer-feminist comment on what a real woman and real man should be like is our common thread through this program. 

Curated by Nastaran Tajeri-Foumani, this program will leave you with courageous, articulate, and committed contributions to the ongoing feminist revolution. 

Jin*, Jian, Azadî! Women*, life, freedom!
