Description


Last Thursday. Every month at Venice Arts! Women's Voices on Screen features extraordinary films by and about women from around the world, developed by Women's Voices Now and Venice Arts.

Watch the films. Join the conversation. Please join us for our November screening, featuring 7 short, experimental films, followed by a post-film discussion by WVN Program Director and Award-winning Filmmaker Leila Jarman special guest Eszter Zimányi, PhD candidate, USC School of Cinematic Arts.


Get Along

Dir. Parya Vatankhah | Iran | 2013

Playing with the principal concepts of her interest—ambiguity and paradox—Parya Vatankhah intends to demonstrate and explore experimentally the types of human relations that may begin beautifully but end tragically.


The Nonsense

Dir. Noha Redwan | Egypt | 2011

“The Nonsense” is an experimental film exploring the relationship between words and imagery, grammar and the moving image.


The Reflex

Dir. Ali and Hussein Mousavi | Afghanistan | 2013

Public discussion of sex is forbidden in the conservative Muslim country of Afghanistan. But the current young generation of Afghanistan wants to challenge this taboo. This film is a "discussion" between a group of young Afghani men after watching a film by the Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami.


Blobfish

Dir. Ugur Ferhat Kormaz | Turkey | 2013

A transgendered woman is attacked by local people. She cannot leave her home for fear of her safety and is alienated from her family. To feel close to them, she tries to reach them in her dreams, but even her dreams turn into nightmares.


Vomit II

Dir. Celia Eslamieh Shomal | Iran & Netherlands | 2013

An experimental exploration of the psychological and physical effects of sexual harassment from person to person in the Muslim world.


No Woman

Dir. Yama Rauf | Afghanistan | 2015

In fundamental Islamic countries men determine the fate of women, who struggle to be heard and have a place of dignity in society. But behind the masks of authority and patriarchy, there are kind and simple men; it is time to remove the masks.


A Dream of Paper Flowers

Dir. Leila Jarman | USA | 2016

A post-film discussion by WVN Program Director and Award-winning Filmmaker Leila Jarman special guest Eszter Zimányi, PhD candidate, USC School of Cinematic Arts, will explore the depth and dimension of these works.

7:30pm reception, 8:00pm screening.
