A Revolution On Canvas (2023)

Sobre o filme

Nickzad “Nicky” Nodjoumi, one of Iran’s most revolutionary artists, was living in New York City and traveled back to Iran to join the Islamic Revolution, making paintings and posters criticizing the Shah’s regime. In 1980, the painter fled his home country following the vandalization of his solo exhibition, “Report on the Revolution”, and its subsequent shutdown by Islamic radicals at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art. Decades later, the artist and his daughter attempt to track down the missing paintings. During the search, Sara, drawing on disarmingly frank conversations with both her father and mother, celebrated artist Nahid Hagigat, and grappling with complex feelings and mysteries that echoes the treacherous path of many immigrant families caught in the crossfire of politics and life.
