WHAT ABOUT ART – Fifi hurle de joie / Fifi howls with happiness
Fifi hurle de joie / Fifi howls with happiness by Mitra Farahani (96′)
A documentary on provocative artist Bahman Mohassess, the so-called “Persian Picasso”. Irreverent and uncompromising, Mohassess had a conflicted relationship with his homeland—praised as a national icon, only to be censored later by an oppressive regime. Ranging from tender to playful, haunting to grotesque, these unforgettable pieces were as unpredictable as the man himself.
