Compelling, poignant, sometimes funny stories of cross-cultural encounters or collisions, both true and fiction, from around the world are screened at the International Film Festival.
I for Iran
(Belgium/Iran, Sanaz Azari, 2014, 50 mins)
Filmmaker Sanaz Azari, who emigrated from Iran to Belgium as a child, documents learning how to read and write Persian as an adult. Taught by an older Iranian exile using an elementary textbook from the Islamic Revolution, these basic language classes become anything-but-basic lessons on life before and after Iran’s upheaval in 1979.
Plus short film TBA.
