Israfil

Ida Panahandeh | 102min | Iran

  • År: 2017
  • Språk: Farsi
  • Text: Engelsk
  • Nordisk Premiär

Ida Panahandeh följer upp succédebuten Nahid (2015) med en elegi om kärlek, förlust och ensamhet.
Mahi sörjer sin son, en fribrottare som dött i en bilolycka, när Behrooz, mannen hon alltid älskat, åter dyker upp i hennes liv. Men Behrooz har nu för avsikt att gifta sig med den betydligt yngre Sara och för den sörjande Mahi öppnas 20 år gamla känslomässiga sår igen på ett smärtsamt sätt. Panahandeh tar sig ömsint och finkänsligt an ett gripande, personligt drama om tre fjättrade människor som längtar efter att undfly det moderna samhällets mentala och fysiska bojor i denna betraktelse över dagens Iran.

Ida Panahandeh

Regissör: Ida Panahandeh

Ida Panahandeh, born in 1979 in Tehran, Iran. She obtained a degree in Film Photography in 2002 and a master’s in Film Direction in 2005, both from the Arts University of Tehran, where she began her film career with several short films. After university she was invited to direct films for Iranian television, and she went on to win awards at numerous national festivals. Throughout her work Panahandeh has focused on women’s rights. This includes her first feature film, Nahid.

Making my second feature was very challenging after the well-received [Nahid]. I didn’t want the success of my first feature to inhibit me from innovating in my second. Indeed, I wanted to use a more creative visual language and employ a novel cinematic narration. Through my direction and film editing, I’ve tried to give each character a distinct dimension, but all within the context of a uniform visual and audio style. In this way I hope to portray a love story that is accessible to people of all cultures, whilst also maintaining all that is specific to Iran. The Israfil of the title refers to the archangel who brings the dead back to life on Resurrection day. In our narrative it is love that is rekindled. The film focuses on three main characters and their interpretation of events: two women from different cultures and generations who love a man each in their own way. Rather than giving in to traditional values, they redefine love through today’s emotional requirements. [Israfil] is thus a modern love story.
