Pictures of Departure
2018, 12:24 minutes
In winter of 1986 our mother writes in her diary: “To scratch the surface of a subject does not penetrate deep into the subject”. Almost three decades later, Pictures of Departure takes this entry and sets off to explore the surfaces and the scratches that linger across generations.
Parastoo Anoushahpour and Faraz Anoushahpour have worked in collaboration since 2013. Using various performative structures, their projects explore collaboration as a way to upset the authority of a singular narrator or position. Recent work has been shown at New York Film Festival, TIFF, Gallery 44 and Trinity Square Video in Toronto.
