Watch »In the Name of Scheherazade or the First Beer Garden in Tehran« for free
As part of the »ifs encounter« Gender & Diversity and the 38th IFFF Dortmund+Köln 2021, Narges Kalhor’s experimental documentary film In the Name of Scheherazade or the First Beer Garden in Tehran can be viewed for free online on our VoD-Platform now.
In a cheerfully anarchic blend of documentary, fiction and animated frame narrative about the ›world’s first storyteller‹, Narges Kalhor and her protagonists confront unfamiliar expectations and their own insecurities.: A homosexual teenager from Syria, an artist with Afghan roots and an Iranian-born beer brewer – political, oriental, exotic – everything you could wish for from an Iranian filmmaker?
The »ifs encounter« Gender & Diversity will take place as a Live-Talk on Wednesday, June 16 at 7.30 pm with director Narges Kalhor and Ulrike Hanstein, Professor of ifs internationale filmschule köln. The event will be broadcast on our Vimeo channel.
