VLAD PETRI, 2023, HR-IR-QA-RO, DCP, ov fa & ro st fr & ang, 68

In the 1970s, an Iranian student named Zahra meets a fellow student called Maria at university in Bucharest. They are both pursuing a degree in medicine and develop a deep friendship and admiration for each other. When the revolution against the Shah breaks out in 1979, Zahra goes back to Iran, moved by the hope of political transformation, although disappointments are quick to follow. Zahra never ends up returning to Romania. Over the next decades, Zahra and Maria exchange letters about protests, the general upheaval in both countries, the oppression of women and how it affects them; Romania is not to remain untouched by revolution either. Separated by the revolutions, their correspondence depicts two women struggling to conform to societal stereotypes and grappling with their profound feelings for each other, which seem to stretch beyond simple friendship. In his film, Vlad Petri draws entirely on incredible, stunningly edited archival footage from Iran and Romania to tell the story of these two women in such a way that the lines between documentary and fiction blur. In such testing times, doesn’t such a bond almost seem too good to be true?

Where we belong

This year, the Where we belong collective looked at our LesBiennes communities: making them, breaking them, nurturing them, passing them on... They set out to discover texts that explore these spaces, these people, these hidden and unsuspected corners that shelter all our unique individualities and make us breathe together. They’ve celebrated, shared silences, healed wounds, grown plants and shared words that feel good. Come and join them for an hour of public reading!
