Plastic Flowers Never Die  Film Screening by UCI Professor Roxanne Varzi (Anthropology and Film & Media Studies)

Reception | 6:30 PM | Humanities Gateway CourtyardScreening | 7:00 PM | 1070 Humanities Gateway (McCormick Screening Room)
Followed by a Q&A Session

Anthropologist, writer and filmmaker Roxanne Varzi spent a year in Iran without a film permit speaking to ideologically-driven mural painters, museum curators, war veterans and other cultural producers alongside the secular youth. The result is an experimental documentary mediation on the aftermath of the war, especially the mourning. PLASTIC FLOWERS NEVER DIE was an Official Selection of the Fourth International Documentary Film Festival in Mexico City (2009), the New Filmmakers festival in Los Angeles (2008), and the MESA FilmFest in Washington, D.C. (2008).
