Iranian Studies Initiative (ISI) at NYU would like to welcome you to our Film Screening and Discussion on "Iranian Encounters." This screening program comprises a partial survey of the myriad ways Iranians have represented and been represented by American and European others throughout modern cinema.
From anti-colonial Iranian comedies to European auterist documentaries; straight-to-video B-movies to film festival winners; state-funded to Hollywood produced, these films chronicle a complex relationship spanning several nations, political epochs, and a circuit of ideologies.
The presentation will be followed by a film screening of: Haji Washington (Ali Hatami, Iran, 1982)
The Moderator of the event is Dr. Leila Pourtavaf, of New York University, and our discussant will be Tiffany Malakooti, the head of Special Projects- Bidoun
