February 25 (10AM)
Block Name: Scattered Impressions: Experimental Shorts
Director: Emelie Mahdavian
Runtime: 3 minutes
Synopsis: This experimental film explores censorship of Iranian women’s dance performance and what constitutes a woman’s ”body” in the digital age. Given that women “dancing” in public is illegal in Iran today — and even animated movies are censored — we set out to play with the edge of what constitutes a body, a dance, or an Iranian woman.
