I comme Iran

Sanaz Azari

Brussels: behind classroom doors Azari learns to read and write her mother tongue Persian using a manual from the Islamic Revolution.

During language classes the director is not only taught basic Persian by her teacher, he also opens the gates to Iranian history and culture. Gradually, the lessons morph into a poetic, visual collage that questions the term freedom and the meaning of revolution.
