Second Cinema had the pleasure of speaking with Author, and Duke University Professor, Negar Mottahedeh about Iranian Cinema and her book, “Displaced Allegories: Post-Revolutionary Iranian Cinema”. Her interview left us jaw dropped and starry eyed in the way she describes not only Iranian Cinema, but its poetics, it’s forced symbolism, and it’s unintentional fruition of 70’s feminist film theory…simply put, she was amazing! Enjoy the interview and you can find out more about Negar through Twitter by following @negaratduke or through her blog, THE NEGARPONTI FILES
