11am to 12pm, 23 February 2023, online

Suitable for both Eduqas and OCR, this session explores the formally complex, often daring films of Iranian cinema. Underlying this area of study is the question ‘how do film makers working in such a highly restricted, state-controlled industry, produce such personal films which often challenge government ideologies?’

Through a focus on A Separation (2011) and Taxi Tehran (2015) we will consider definitions of world and global cinema, production contexts and the relationship between film, representation and ideology. The session will include analysis of sequences to examine how the elements of film form are used to construct representation and spectator positioning.
