The Returning Hero
2021, short Film; 35 min
Supervisor / Betreuer*in: Jörg Heiser
The film plays with different forms of representation and reality that the Persian lion as a symbol of identity, power and heroism unfolds its meaning in Iranian culture.
The work is a puzzle in the form of a film made of my documentations together with found and archived video footage, songs, documents, interviews and daily news. The film attempts to create a space where the viewer is confronted with various fragments of history that create a network of causes and clues to understand the complexity of the symbol.
