1001 NIGHTS APART

Germany, Iran, United States 2021 – Director: Sarvnaz Alambeigi – Original language: English, Farsi – Subtitles: English, None

In Iran, dancing is forbidden – but some young people in Tehran are trying to teach themselves how to do it behind closed doors. They know hardly anything about the history of Iranian dance before the Revolution. Sarvnaz Alambeigi has discovered some rare film footage of the National Ballet from back then. How can someone bring together the old and the new generations of dance? Anna Magdalena Hofer
