Maryam Tafakory FTS Film Screening
Through allegories of desire and censorship, Maryam Tafakory creates vistas in the subconscious. Does power lie in the gaze, or is it in the gesture of a hand, moving away just slightly from a prohibited (representation of) touch? Tafakory explores prohibitions in post-revolution Iranian cinema, and pushes them open to see what¿s inside through poetry, collages and live performance. In this emergent space her work circumvents what¿s lost and gained from such limitation, opening the senses to its liveliest forms, unlocking haptic resonances of epidermic cinema.
