In presence of the director.

In order to control the population, the dictatorship of Iran has done its best to destroy the memories and imagination of its people. Using animation and images, filmmaker and Ex-political prisoner, Masoud Raouf shows us how step by step the visual landscape along with art and culture were subverted and replaced as means to install the government’s theocracy. As an act of restoring the human map, Raouf shares his stories based on his experiences and memories of pre and post revolution Iran while living in exile.

The screening will be followed by a meeting with the director and an exhibition of the art works used in the movie.
