Nasoot -1997

Directed by Shahin Parhami

Nasoot is an Islamic mythological term for the world of corporeal existence. The film is poetic meditation on the death of three Iranian refugees who committed suicide in Ottawa in the late 1990’s. Evoking the power of memory and history, this film is about dispossession, exile and alienation caused by war and displacement.
