from april 19th to june 14th
Cotxeres Borrell, in collaboration with Casa Asia, organises an Iranian film display with three recent films, as well as very relevant in the international panorama.
We can see films like Nader and Simin, a separation, from Asghar Farhadi (2011), in which all the characters need to hide something to preserve their truth, and that amount of lies, which is triggered according to the logic of the domino effect, allows to talk about the particularities of Iranian society, from the impositions of religion to the difficulties of being a woman in such a repressive context, even though this can happen anywhere on the planet; or as Taxi Tehran by Jafar Panahi (2015), winner of the Berlin Bear and the FIPRESCI Award of the 65th edition of the Berlinale, is a film that goes into daily life without restrictions; and, finally, The Traveler of Ashgar Farhadi (2016), a detailed analysis of a relationship that, as happens with the apartment where they live at the beginning of the film, cracks and deteriorates, with the danger of a total collapse. Farhadi poses a moral dilemma, a provocation to elucidate on topics such as anger, compassion and, above all, forgiveness.
