Panjareh is a visual short story based on a beautiful poem by the Iranian poet and filmmaker Forough Forrakhzad about a young woman growing up. By remembering her childhood she suddenly realizes she is a woman now. (duration 7m23s, format 9:16)
About Panjareh: “During the lockdown, alone in my room with one window, I watched the neighbours across the street, observed their slow movements, their loneliness… I was watching a television show with the inspiring Sachli Gholamalizad; the short stories by the wonderful Fleur Pierets on my lap, I discovered the beautiful poem Window by Forough Forrakhzad. It tells the story of a young woman growing up. By remembering her childhood she suddenly realizes she really is a woman now. And me too, by reading her fluttering words, I realized my girlhood is over.”
