Film | The Fabulous Life and Thoughts of Ahmad Fardid (2015): An Iranian Philosopher


The film explores the life and thought of Iranian philosopher Ahmad Fardid (1910-1994) in his intellectual crusade to halt rising Western influence in Iran. "Fardid rarely published anything and instead had organized a group of "Iranian Heideggerians" in the 1970s who according to one of its prominent participants, Dariush Shayegan, would use these meetings to explore "conflicts between modernity and tradition, absolutism and democracy, liberalism and communism." More importantly, Shayegan maintains that Fardid would use Heidegger's ideas "to serve his own interest and draw far-fetched conclusions" Mohammad Rafi, Re-working the Philosophy of Martin Heidegger: Iran's Revolution of 1979 and its Quest for Cultural Authenticity. Ali Mirsepassi, Albert Gallatin Research Excellence Professor of Middle Eastern & Islamic Studies in NYU's Gallatin School and Department of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, will present this documentary, which he co-created with Hamed Yousefi.

Screening | Culture Declares Emergency: Film Installations


Mika Rottenberg’s film installations explore the seduction, magic, and desperation of our hyper-capitalistic, globally connected reality. Female workers produce goods in strange factories that follow elaborate manufacturing rationales. Rottenberg’s cinematic works, which have a surrealistic aesthetic and are rigidly structured in a spatial sense, emphasize the interrelation between labor, economics, and the production of value, and how our affective relationships are increasingly monetized. The artist weaves documentary elements with fiction to create complex allegories for the living conditions experienced within our global systems.
