Composition
At That Very Moment

At That Very Moment

An boy raised in the mountains films his home surroundings, while letting his thoughts flow freely. The jumbled-up images match the energy of a child, but the boy also proves to be a surprisingly deep and existential thinker.
My Father

My Father

A personal, essayistic narrative using archive footage and personal photos, exploring how the lives of the filmmaker and her family have been affected by the Iranian Revolution and the shift to a religious fundamentalist state.
Losing Ground

Losing Ground

In his Yangon apartment, a young, anonymous artist and filmmaker reflects on how his life has changed since the military coup in Myanmar. Out of fear, he lives indoors, where a window offers his only view of the outside world.
