The Riptide

Nazanin Noroozi - Solo Show

26 days to the ending

20 Aug - 15 Oct, 2021

The Riptide

The Riptide is a visual short story based on super 8 movies that Nazanin Noroozi's father took in post-revolution Iran. In this 4 minute film, handmade cinema is used as a medium to transform personal and family archives in order to re-create a narrative told by others addressing trauma and displacement. The mundane moments taken from kids’ school choirs, are juxtaposed with the images of glaciers melting, fictional asteroids attacking the earth, and other natural disasters to lift us beyond a singular event and represent a communal effect shared by millions in the anthropocene.
