In person: Mitra Tabrizian, director


Mitra Tabrizian, whose photographs are included in the exhibition My Iran: Six Women Photographers, discusses Gholam, her “striking feature debut” (Mark Kermode, The Guardian). Set in London’s Iranian exile community during the 2011 Arab Spring, it features a mesmerizing performance by Shahab Hosseini (the star of Asghar Farhadi’s The Salesman) as a taxi driver with a mysterious past. He is drawn into Iran’s political turmoil, no matter how hard he tries to resist. (Dir.: Mitra Tabrizian, United Kingdom, 2018, 94 min., English and Persian with English subtitles)

Preceded by The Insider, a poetic contemplation on Albert Camus’ The Outsider with text by Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri. (Dir.: Mitra Tabrizian, United Kingdom, 2018, 6 min., Blu Ray, English)
