What I learned by befriending Iranians on Facebook

Iran looks a certain way to Westerners. But a look into the day to day lives of normal Iranians can change that perception. Thank you Vox for producing this.

At the modern-day crossroads of Turkey and Syria, the neighborhood of Istasyon is taken over by children with cameras. Through their gaze, they transform cinder block villages into portals and roam freely across abandoned train tracks to Sirkhane Darkroom, an oasis of red light and pomegranate trees, where their images are born. Darkroom is an experimental and celebratory portrait of Istasyon’s youth and their capacity to forge an alternate reality within a conflict zone. Embedded in this vibrant 16mm film, a co-creation between the film crew and these photography students is a reverence for the mysterious power and intimacy of analog image-making.

Patagonia ‘Mirador del Sur’

Part-Chilean, part-Argentinian - the territory has no official geographical boundaries; a land defined by stories, antiquated maps & historical discoveries of new lands. Dreaming of crossing Patagonia overland, our adventure took us by foot - hiking Torres del Paine, renting 4x4’s, overnight buses & ferries through the fjords, the Southern-most commuter train in South America & a guy we paid $200 to drive us 8hrs across the border on gravel roads when there were no other means. 5 weeks & almost 3000 miles, across Patagonia. Shot on Fuji XT3

როცა დედამიწა მსუბუქია - GOSLAB - WHEN THE EARTH SEEMS TO BE LIGHT

Zaza Rusadze for Zazarfilm, Temur Ugulava, Zazarfilm production Levan Maisuradze, David Meskhi, Tamuna Karumidze cinematographer Georgia, Germany 2015 Young Georgian skaters, artists and musicians feel trapped between the powers of the church and the political world. They create their own open spaces beneath viaducts and at other “non-places” that lend themselves to romantic notions of a free existence. Questions are posed to them about God, love and freedom, but these boys would much rather just be skating – for many of them it has grown into an obsession. They may be unfazed by painful falls, but narrow-mindedness really gets to them. One of them was bullied because of his hairstyle, and he explains that Georgians simply won’t accept people who look different. Many of their friends share their bleak vision of their country. The way they see it, Georgia is all about the old rather than the new. They get no acknowledgement here, so they spend their evenings throwing Molotov cocktails at a concrete slope. Their tattoos are “a diary you can’t escape from. You tattoo what you feel; what’s important for you at that moment.” The portraits of the skaters are based on a series of photos by David Meskhi, one of the three co-directors. This impression of their daily lives is intercut with news footage of demonstrations in Georgia.

Second Tier City


"Heart-breaking glimpse of large-scale urbanization in China and its consequences." A short documentary about the city Yiwu in China and the people who live there. Yiwu has the largest small item market in the world which has over 50,000 stores. Young people in the surrounding area have been moving there to start a business. Its called Second Tier City because cities in China are ranked by the government based on the money they generate, among other things, and Yiwu is considered second behind cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou which are First Tier. Yiwu for it’s size is ranked rather high because of the massive market where you can buy every type of small item manufactured in China in one place and the massive amount of money and trade that generates. This film primarily follows the lives of two young women who are chasing their dreams in Yiwu.
