Iranian-born artist and filmmaker living in New York, Shirin Neshat’s early video works comprised overtly political content or critique departing later in favour of more poetic imagery and complex human narratives. She’s explored and experimented with the mediums of photography, video and film, holding numerous exhibitions and screenings at several institutions, receiving prestigious prizes. In 2009, she directed her first feature-length film, Women Without Men, which received the Silver Lion for Best Director at the Venice Film Festival. Her second feature film, Looking for Oum Kulthum is included in the programme of the Festival this year. At this festival talk moderated by critic Esin Küçüktepepınar, Shirin Neshat, who is also on the jury of the Human Rights in Cinema competition of the festival will be sharing her thoughts and experiences on photography, visual art and cinema.
