“Growing Beneath Old Trees” - 2018
HD Video 9:42 minutes
The film is a commentary on how a foreigner negotiates and explores her/his identity through the cultural institutions of a city. The main character Mehregan Meysami visited Berlin for 2 weeks during the course of my artistic residency over winter of 2018. During this time, we intentionally allowed ourselves to enter of process of formal investigation and purposeless drifting. The result of this exercise is a 9-minute lm were reality intermingles with ction and the spaces shift from visits to museums with periods of inner drift.
