Noces ephémères

user
If you are talking about Iranian film, the first thing on your mind are films about Iranian divorce, gender issue and very bad position of women in the countries like Iran. But film Ephemeral Weddings/Noces ephémères by Reza Serkanian is not about the position of women in this culture. It is about women, customs and mentality all together. I say women because the film discusses love and women in the focus via Iranian customs. Colorful representation of Iranian film director Reza Serkanian gi...

Pierrick Sorin’s one-man show at 104

user
The exhibition of Nantes-born video artist Pierrick Sorin, currently nestled in blacked out corners at Centquatre, is very much a one-man sketch show. Practicing the method of autofilmage, Sorin often assumes several roles simultaneously, with superimposition allowing for their interaction. His characters are both comical and endearing, in scenarios fictional yet relatable to real life. Though it may seem an introspective technique, Sorin’s work looks into aspects related to...
