Q&A with:
Navid Ghadimi, Susan

Susan, a young Iran­ian woman in Berlin, lives not too much accord­ing to the expec­ta­tions of the regime. Fol­low­ing close­ly the nuanced rit­u­als and prac­tices of her every­day life, Navid Ghadimis sen­so­r­i­al ethnog­ra­phy aims to gain insights into the melan­cholic feel­ings under­neath and the pro­tag­o­nist’s psy­chic life. 

SHE, HERSELF is a purely obser­va­tion­al film about Iran­ian female non­con­for­mi­ty in the dias­po­ra, which does not talk much, but simply shows. The film was devel­oped in scope of direc­tor Navid Ghadimi’s three year­long grad­u­a­tion research on “Iran­ian Gender lim­i­nal­i­ty in Dias­po­ra”
