WEDDING: A FILM
Mohammadreza Farzad | Iran 2015 | 57 Min. | OmeU

Hochzeit in Hülle und Fülle! In einem poetischen Essay nimmt sich der iranische Filmemacher, selbst geschieden, dem gesellschaftlichen Brauch an, welcher der Liebe Form und Regelwerk verpasst. Lustvoll durchforscht er zahlreiche Hochzeitsdokumente auf der Suche nach Anzeichen künftiger Entzweiung. Ist die Hochzeit nur eine täuschende Fantasie, eine Zuflucht? Ein Ausnahmezustand, um dem realen Leben zu entkommen? Oder steckt wirklich mehr dahinter?
