Event description

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.

Enraciné (2017), 38 min

dir. Mania Akbari and Douglas White

Enraciné explores the stuttering beginning of the relationship between Mania Akbari and artist Douglas White. The filmmaker follows White into the French forest where he is realising a sculptural project. The film takes its title after the sculpture. We find the artist digging through the earth to expose an intricate network of tree roots laying just beneath the forest grounds. This physical intervention into the landscape serves as the metaphorical framework for a conversation which weaves its way through their lives, exploring how personal and political histories can bring us together or hold us apart.

This screening is followed by a conversation with Mania Akbari and Douglas White, moderated by Azadeh Fatehrad.
