(DIS)Place

(Documentary feature / in development)

A film-voyage where the filmmaker travels to meet with two other artists, one in Palestine and the other in her country of origin, Iran, to look at themes around displacement and the supposed need for a (national) identity, while exploring how this affects artistic expression. Made as a travelogue, her interaction with the artists is juxtaposed with the actual travels, on the road, contemplating symbolic places like ruins and archeological sites. Watching the artists work, contemplating their process, and exploring how we create cultural identity through myth and representation, and the inconsistencies that make up our national characters today.

Produced by Janja Kralj / KinoElektron
