Short Film

On her 30th birthday, a young Iranian woman and teacher, finds herself caught between the remnants of memories of her loved ones, who have all left the country. While performing mundane tasks such as watering her plants or boiling water, memories come to her in fragments. She encounters her mother, who forgets where her pills are; her sister, who dyes her eyebrows and hair blonde to pass as white; and someone who seems like a lost memory of a partner not present. The border between memory and reality is blurred through a glitchy Skype connection with her mother and sister, suggesting they are abroad. In this piece, I experimented with fragmentation, imagination, and flashbacks.
