What Did You Dream Last Night, Parajanov?

Saturday, Mar 16, 2024 at 2:00 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Faraz Fesharaki. Germany/Iran. 2024, 80 mins. DCP. In Persian with English subtitles. Fesharaki, the cinematographer of Alexander Koberidze’s What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? as well as fellow First Look selection Arthur&Diana, proves himself a supple and inventive director in his own right with this poignant personal documentary. Composed almost entirely of webcam footage gathered during Skype calls between the Berlin-based, Iranian émigré, his parents in Isfahan, and occasionally his friend Rahi, the film gradually assembles a warts-and-all portrait of a family separated by space, but still profoundly connected in each other’s hearts, minds, and dreams. International premiere
