PRIX VIDEOFORMES 2015 – PROGRAM #2

Thursday, March 19 at 12:30 a.m. – Friday, March 20 at 04:00 p.m. / Maison de la Culture, salle Boris Vian

Tehran-Geles
Arash Nassiri
Iran / 2014 / 18’10

Night-time signs in Tehran are inlaid into aerial images of Los Angeles. During the flight, recorded phone calls relate memories of events that took place in Tehran. These stories refer us to the city’s past.
In the 1970s and 80s the reality of American life was projected onto the city’s social and urban fabric. The music, clothes, cars, boulevards and motorways echoed that way of life. The revolution brought this period to an end. Like science fiction cinema, in which the present of a city is projected into the future, this video projects the past of Tehran into the present, taking Los Angeles as a setting.
