Ethnography Lab Film Nights|ZAGROS
2022-12-07 @ 18:00
The Concordia Ethnography Lab is happy to invite you to the last film night of the semester, this Wednesday, December 7th at 6pm! They will be screening the beautiful film Zagros (2018) by Ariane Lorrain and Shahab Mihandoust. The screening will be followed by a Q+A with the directors.
ZAGROS follows the creation of carpets across the Western mountains of Iran, the land of Bakhtiaris. Wool is the guiding thread that traverses nomadic and sedentary cultures, revealing the worlds of weavers, dyers and shepherds through their labour. Carpets weave the social fabric of their lives, giving it form as well as colour. The work is hard, and is gradually being devalued by the outside world – but their lives are redeemed through the love they feel for their traditions.
** The event will take place at Concordia University’s EV Building, 1515 Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H3G 2W1, Room 10.625. Once you exit the elevator, follow the “Milieux Institute” arrows.
