Description

Free. The Space

Mania Akbari, one of the most remarkable Iranian female directors shows her latest works in a series of screenings at Nottingham Contemporary.

10+4 (2007), 77 min

Mania Akbari’s second feature 10+4 (director, lead) depicts the director’s fight against breast cancer. A process that ends with a double mastectomy when she is thirty. The film follows Akbari through surgery; loss of hair following chemotherapy and remove of the compulsory headscarf. Treading an elegant line between documentary and fiction, Akbari takes a daring look at complex social situations that arise in the face of mortality emerging with a new zest for life.
