Experimental Film Society is a creative organization founded in Tehran (Iran) in 2000, dedicated to producing and distributing low-budget independent and experimental films, from a dozen filmmakers and artists scattered around the globe. The session will consist of a sample of recent work by its most prolific members: Rouzbeh Rashidi, founder and promoter of the institution, and Maximilian Le Cain, honorary member and exponent of contemporary Irish experimental film. The duo will attend the session and questions from the audience after the screenings.
In the lobby of the auditorium there will be displayed throughout the day H7HSP160 REGRESSION, an audiovisual piece conducted as a dialogue between the two authors, and especially designed for this context. H7HSP160 REGRESSION is an articulated assembly from two recently completed feature films in which Le Cain and Rashidi have collaborated. It is a continuation of complementary and personal concerns that intimately connect with cinema.
