RADIOGRAPH OF A FAMILY (Fiorouzeh Khosrovani 2021)

Growing up in a divided family during the Iranian revolution, which made me miss PERSEPOLIS with its lively self-interrogation. The filmmaker reconstructs her parents relationship, his liberalism, her militant Islamist takeover, through reconstructed photographs, invented scenes and staged dialogues, not realistically. The effect is stylish, but one is left with more questions than answers.
