Scented Rooms - 2023

2023-01-25

    In 1979, following the Islamic Revolution, theatres across Iran were shut down, including the oldest, Tamashakhaneh Tehran, built in 1915. Filmmaker Shauheen Daneshfar explores its dusty, decaying interiors with 35mm film, reviving a past enriched with artistic expression and resistance through archival footage, choreographed re-enactments, and the memories of exiled and oppressed artists and performers. Scented Rooms is a powerful, poetic ode to a silenced history resoundingly present.
