Description:
Wrath (2015) is an experimental film and sound composition in three movements, Canto 1 (silent), Canto 2 (vocal composition) and Canto 3 (piano composition). The image is of a young woman architect from Iran, whom I filmed in my studio in New York. I invited her to perform silent gestures of lamentation. This act evoked a memory of another time, in Tehran, when she abandoned her scarf and rushed through the city bareheaded. My short poetic film became a record of this encounter but also a further textual, musical and visual exploration of the fragile relationships between women’s bodies and cities.
